How do I choose between the different cross-validation leave-out options?

Possible Solutions:

There are many attributes that influence selection of the appropriate cross-validation scheme for a given situation:

  • The ordering of the samples in the dataset,
  • The total number of objects (and variables) in the dataset
  • The presence (or lack thereof) of replicate samples in the dataset
  • The specific objective(s) of the analysis,
  • The consequences/costs of overly optimistic or overly pessimistic results, and
  • The amount of time available to do cross-validation

For details on the different methods, see our Wiki page: Using Cross-Validation and, in particular, Choosing the Cross-Validation Method
