Defining the outcome field for binary and extended binary models
Define the outcome field that represents the behavior that you want to predict in the model.
In the Outcome definition step, from the Model type drop-down list, select the model type:
- To configure a binary model, select Binary.
- To configure an extended binary model, select Extended_Scoring.
From the Outcome field to predict field, select an outcome field.The list contains only symbolic fields.For the <Virtual Field> option, the Virtual field dialog box opens for defining or selecting a formula for the outcome field. For more information, see Virtual fields.
For extended binary models, if the sample contains a field that indicates whether the sample cases were accepted or rejected during processing, select the Use decision field check box.
In the value grid, map every value of the outcome field to an Outcome category and click Apply.
In the Graphical view tab or the Tabular view tab, check the distribution of cases.

Predictive models are optimized to predict different types of outcome.
