During evaluation, in addition to the <em>train</em> and <em>deploy</em> mode we describe in earlier sections, the engine also generates a list of 
 testing data points.

 de. We illustrate it with <a href="/templates/classification/quickstart/">the classification template</a>.</p><h2 id='overview' class='header-anchors'>Overview</h2><p>A simplistic form of metric is a function which takes a <code>(Query, PredictedResult, ActualResult)</code>-tuple (<em>QPA-tuple</em>) as input and return a score. Exploiting this properties allows us to implement custom metric with a single line of code (plus some boilerplates). We demonstate this with two metrics: accuracy and precision.</p> <h2 id='example-1:-accuracy-metric' class='header-anchors'>Example 1: Accuracy Metric</h2><p>Accuracy is a metric capturing the portion of correct prediction among all test data points. A way to model this is for each correct QPA-tuple, we give a score of 1.0 and otherwise 0.0, then we take an average of all tuple scores.</p><p>PredictionIO has a [[AverageMetric]] helper class which provides this feature. This class takes 4 type parameters, [[EvalInfo]], [[Query]], [[PredictedRes
 ult]], and [[ActualResult]], these types can be found from the engine&#39;s signature. Line 5 below is the custom calculation.</p><div class="highlight scala"><table style="border-spacing: 0"><tbody><tr><td class="gutter gl" style="text-align: right"><pre class="lineno">1

 e. We illustrate it with <a href="/templates/classification/quickstart/">the classification template</a>.</p><h2 id='overview' class='header-anchors'>Overview</h2><p>A simplistic form of metric is a function which takes a <code>(Query, PredictedResult, ActualResult)</code>-tuple (<em>QPA-tuple</em>) as input and return a score. Exploiting this properties allows us to implement custom metric with a single line of code (plus some boilerplates). We demonstate this with two metrics: accuracy and precision.</p> <h2 id='example-1:-accuracy-metric' class='header-anchors'>Example 1: Accuracy Metric</h2><p>Accuracy is a metric capturing the portion of correct prediction among all test data points. A way to model this is for each correct QPA-tuple, we give a score of 1.0 and otherwise 0.0, then we take an average of all tuple scores.</p><p>PredictionIO has a [[AverageMetric]] helper class which provides this feature. This class takes 4 type parameters, [[EvalInfo]], [[Query]], [[PredictedResu
 lt]], and [[ActualResult]], these types can be found from the engine&#39;s signature. Line 5 below is the custom calculation.</p><div class="highlight scala"><table style="border-spacing: 0"><tbody><tr><td class="gutter gl" style="text-align: right"><pre class="lineno">1
