Predictive accuracy, as an estimation of a classifier’s future performance, has been studied for at least seventy years. With the advent of the modern computer era, techniques that may have been previously impractical are now calculable within a reasonable time frame. Within this chapter, three techniques of resampling, namely, leave-one-out, k-fold cross validation and bootstrapping; are investigated as methods of error rate estimation with application to variable precision rough set theory (VPRS). A prototype expert system is utilised to explore the nature of each resampling technique when VPRS is applied to an example dataset. The software produces a series of graphs and descriptive statistics, which are used to illustrate the characteristics of each technique with regards to VPRS, and comparisons are drawn between the results.
