Score Tool

The Score Tool creates an estimate of a target variable by applying an R model to a set of supplied predictor variables. If the target variable is categorical, it provides probabilities that a record (based on the predictor variable) belongs to each category. If the target variable is continuous, it estimates the target variable’s value. Although it can be used to assess model performance, it does not do so on its own.

This tool uses the R tool. Go to Options > Download Predictive Tools and sign in to the Alteryx Downloads and Licenses portal to install R and the packages used by the R Tool. See Download and Use Predictive Tools.

Model type

The Score tool can evaluate models from a number of locations:

  • Local Model: The model is pulled into the workflow from a local machine or is accessed within a database.
  • Promote Model: The model is stored in the Promote model management system.
