We covered many topics, including data loading, visualization, construction of a predictive modeling workflow, exploration of decision trees, overfitting, model scoring and of course finally predicting with cross-validated model on a new data set. One of the classic exercises for such courses includes using the Attrition - Train and Attrition - Predict data sets from the Datasets widget and answering the following questions:

  • Find one or two interesting variables in a Box Plot and describe what they show.
  • Use all known models in Test and Score. Which one has the highest classification accuracy?
  • Which three variables are the most important predictors for Logistic Regression?
  • On a new data set, identify the person that is most likely to quit.
  • What would be your recommendations to the HR department, considering the Nomogram?
