Plot receiver operating characteristic plot.

ROCPlot(frame, xvar, truthVar, truthTarget, title, ..., estimate_sig = FALSE, returnScores = FALSE, nrep = 100, parallelCluster = NULL)

frame | data frame to get values from |
---|---|

xvar | name of the independent (input or model) column in frame |

truthVar | name of the dependent (output or result to be modeled) column in frame |

truthTarget | value we consider to be positive |

title | title to place on plot |

... | no unnamed argument, added to force named binding of later arguments. |

estimate_sig | logical, if TRUE estimate and display significance of difference from AUC 0.5. |

returnScores | logical if TRUE return detailed permutedScores |

nrep | number of permutation repetitions to estimate p values. |

parallelCluster | (optional) a cluster object created by package parallel or package snow. |
