The Altair Community is migrating to a new platform to provide a better experience for you. The RapidMiner Community will merge with the Altair Community at the same time. In preparation for the migration, both communities are on read-only mode from July 15th - July 24th, 2024. Technical support via cases will continue to work as is.

"Performance with Gini Index"

Would I be correct in my assumption that I can abuse the Weight by Gini Index to use it as a way of calculating the performance of a model? 
If not, why not?  Here's a sample process demonstrating the abuse I mean.
