meanAveragePrecisionAt
(k)[source]¶ Returns the mean average precision (MAP) at first k ranking of all the queries. If a query has an empty ground truth set, the average precision will be zero and a log warning is generated.
New in version 3.0.0.

ndcgAt
(k)[source]¶ Compute the average NDCG value of all the queries, truncated at ranking position k. The discounted cumulative gain at position k is computed as: sum,,i=1,,^k^ (2^{relevance of ‘’i’’th item}^  1) / log(i + 1), and the NDCG is obtained by dividing the DCG value on the ground truth set. In the current implementation, the relevance value is binary. If a query has an empty ground truth set, zero will be used as NDCG together with a log warning.
New in version 1.4.0.

precisionAt
(k)[source]¶ Compute the average precision of all the queries, truncated at ranking position k.
If for a query, the ranking algorithm returns n (n < k) results, the precision value will be computed as #(relevant items retrieved) / k. This formula also applies when the size of the ground truth set is less than k.
If a query has an empty ground truth set, zero will be used as precision together with a log warning.
New in version 1.4.0.

recallAt
(k)[source]¶ Compute the average recall of all the queries, truncated at ranking position k.
If for a query, the ranking algorithm returns n results, the recall value will be computed as #(relevant items retrieved) / #(ground truth set). This formula also applies when the size of the ground truth set is less than k.
If a query has an empty ground truth set, zero will be used as recall together with a log warning.
