`fit_resamples()`

computes a set of performance metrics across one or more
resamples. It does not perform any tuning (see `tune_grid()`

and
`tune_bayes()`

for that), and is instead used for fitting a single
model+recipe or model+formula combination across many resamples.

## Usage

```
fit_resamples(object, ...)
# S3 method for model_spec
fit_resamples(
object,
preprocessor,
resamples,
...,
metrics = NULL,
eval_time = NULL,
control = control_resamples()
)
# S3 method for workflow
fit_resamples(
object,
resamples,
...,
metrics = NULL,
eval_time = NULL,
control = control_resamples()
)
```

## Arguments

- object
A

`parsnip`

model specification or an unfitted workflow(). No tuning parameters are allowed; if arguments have been marked with tune(), their values must be finalized.- ...
Currently unused.

- preprocessor
A traditional model formula or a recipe created using

`recipes::recipe()`

.- resamples
An

`rset`

resampling object created from an`rsample`

function, such as`rsample::vfold_cv()`

.- metrics
A

`yardstick::metric_set()`

, or`NULL`

to compute a standard set of metrics.- eval_time
A numeric vector of time points where dynamic event time metrics should be computed (e.g. the time-dependent ROC curve, etc). The values must be non-negative and should probably be no greater than the largest event time in the training set (See Details below).

- control
A

`control_resamples()`

object used to fine tune the resampling process.

## Case Weights

Some models can utilize case weights during training. tidymodels currently supports two types of case weights: importance weights (doubles) and frequency weights (integers). Frequency weights are used during model fitting and evaluation, whereas importance weights are only used during fitting.

To know if your model is capable of using case weights, create a model spec
and test it using `parsnip::case_weights_allowed()`

.

To use them, you will need a numeric column in your data set that has been
passed through either `hardhat:: importance_weights()`

or
`hardhat::frequency_weights()`

.

For functions such as `fit_resamples()`

and the `tune_*()`

functions, the
model must be contained inside of a `workflows::workflow()`

. To declare that
case weights are used, invoke `workflows::add_case_weights()`

with the
corresponding (unquoted) column name.

From there, the packages will appropriately handle the weights during model fitting and (if appropriate) performance estimation.

## Censored Regression Models

Three types of metrics can be used to assess the quality of censored regression models:

static: the prediction is independent of time.

dynamic: the prediction is a time-specific probability (e.g., survival probability) and is measured at one or more particular times.

integrated: same as the dynamic metric but returns the integral of the different metrics from each time point.

Which metrics are chosen by the user affects how many evaluation times should be specified. For example:

```
# Needs no `eval_time` value
metric_set(concordance_survival)
# Needs at least one `eval_time`
metric_set(brier_survival)
metric_set(brier_survival, concordance_survival)
# Needs at least two eval_time` values
metric_set(brier_survival_integrated, concordance_survival)
metric_set(brier_survival_integrated, concordance_survival)
metric_set(brier_survival_integrated, concordance_survival, brier_survival)
```

Values of `eval_time`

should be less than the largest observed event
time in the training data. For many non-parametric models, the results beyond
the largest time corresponding to an event are constant (or `NA`

).

## Performance Metrics

To use your own performance metrics, the `yardstick::metric_set()`

function
can be used to pick what should be measured for each model. If multiple
metrics are desired, they can be bundled. For example, to estimate the area
under the ROC curve as well as the sensitivity and specificity (under the
typical probability cutoff of 0.50), the `metrics`

argument could be given:

```
metrics = metric_set(roc_auc, sens, spec)
```

Each metric is calculated for each candidate model.

If no metric set is provided, one is created:

For regression models, the root mean squared error and coefficient of determination are computed.

For classification, the area under the ROC curve and overall accuracy are computed.

Note that the metrics also determine what type of predictions are estimated during tuning. For example, in a classification problem, if metrics are used that are all associated with hard class predictions, the classification probabilities are not created.

The out-of-sample estimates of these metrics are contained in a list column
called `.metrics`

. This tibble contains a row for each metric and columns
for the value, the estimator type, and so on.

`collect_metrics()`

can be used for these objects to collapse the results
over the resampled (to obtain the final resampling estimates per tuning
parameter combination).

## Obtaining Predictions

When `control_grid(save_pred = TRUE)`

, the output tibble contains a list
column called `.predictions`

that has the out-of-sample predictions for each
parameter combination in the grid and each fold (which can be very large).

The elements of the tibble are tibbles with columns for the tuning
parameters, the row number from the original data object (`.row`

), the
outcome data (with the same name(s) of the original data), and any columns
created by the predictions. For example, for simple regression problems, this
function generates a column called `.pred`

and so on. As noted above, the
prediction columns that are returned are determined by the type of metric(s)
requested.

This list column can be `unnested`

using `tidyr::unnest()`

or using the
convenience function `collect_predictions()`

.

## Extracting Information

The `extract`

control option will result in an additional function to be
returned called `.extracts`

. This is a list column that has tibbles
containing the results of the user's function for each tuning parameter
combination. This can enable returning each model and/or recipe object that
is created during resampling. Note that this could result in a large return
object, depending on what is returned.

The control function contains an option (`extract`

) that can be used to
retain any model or recipe that was created within the resamples. This
argument should be a function with a single argument. The value of the
argument that is given to the function in each resample is a workflow
object (see `workflows::workflow()`

for more information). Several
helper functions can be used to easily pull out the preprocessing
and/or model information from the workflow, such as
`extract_preprocessor()`

and
`extract_fit_parsnip()`

.

As an example, if there is interest in getting each parsnip model fit back, one could use:

```
extract = function (x) extract_fit_parsnip(x)
```

Note that the function given to the `extract`

argument is evaluated on
every model that is *fit* (as opposed to every model that is *evaluated*).
As noted above, in some cases, model predictions can be derived for
sub-models so that, in these cases, not every row in the tuning parameter
grid has a separate R object associated with it.
