Classification evaluation of training and testingdata

I train a naive bayes model by using a split validation (first training of naive bayes, then application of the model and evaluation by the performance operator). The result is one performance window with the results of the testing data.

But, as far as I know the software should return two performance windows. One for the results of the training and one for the testingdata. How can I see if my model is overfitting or compare the performance if I see the results of the testingdata without comparison to the training performance?

Thank you

    You can apply the model to the training set immediately after it is created, determine the performance and pass that to the outside using the "through" connections from inside the split validation operator.

    I made a simple example.
