    When you use cross-validation RM separates the samples into K partitions at random (or in a stratified way). If you want to have full control of how the observations are assigned to the different partitions you use batch. This is going to be a column with numbers from 1 to K indicating the partition to which each observation belongs.


    I've used batch cross-validation when I want to compare the results from Rapidminer to the results of other programs.
