Assignment 4: Classification

Two datasets (Golf, Car) can be found on Piazza. In each dataset, each row corresponds to a
record. The last column corresponds to the class label, and the remaining columns are the
attributes. README presents the meanings of the attributes in these two datasets.
In this assignment, you are asked to implement Decision Tree algorithm. Template
(decisionTree_template.py) is for Python 3. In the template, you are asked to fill in two
functions: chooseBestFeature and stopCriteria. In chooseBestFeature, you need to use
Gini index as the impurity measure to decide the best feature to split. In stopCriteria, you
need to check whether the stopping criteria are satisfied, and return the class label
assigned to the leaf node.

Assignment 4: Classification

Two datasets (Golf, Car) can be found on Piazza. In each dataset, each row corresponds to a
record. The last column corresponds to the class label, and the remaining columns are the
attributes. README presents the meanings of the attributes in these two datasets.
In this assignment, you are asked to implement Decision Tree algorithm. Template
(decisionTree_template.py) is for Python 3. In the template, you are asked to fill in two
functions: chooseBestFeature and stopCriteria. In chooseBestFeature, you need to use
Gini index as the impurity measure to decide the best feature to split. In stopCriteria, you
need to check whether the stopping criteria are satisfied, and return the class label
assigned to the leaf node.
The attributes in the provided datasets are either nominal or ordinal. You need to consider
multi-way split strategy to split the attributes in this assignment.
Do not directly call a function or package that implements Decision Tree algorithm. You
need to implement the algorithm by yourself. If you are not sure about whether it is OK
to use a certain function, please post your question on Piazza.
Please take the following steps:
1. Implement Decision Tree algorithm as follows:
DTree(records, attributes) returns a tree
If stopping criterion is met, return a leaf node with the assigned class.
Else pick an attribute F based on Gini Index and create a node R for it
For each possible value v of F:
Let Sv be the subset of records that have value v for F
call DTree(Sv, attributes – {F}) and attach the resulting tree as the
subtree to the current node.
Return the subtree.
2. Test your Decision Tree algorithm on Golf dataset. Based on your output, you can use
the provided treeplot.py file to automatically draw the tree. Using multi-way split, the
resulting tree for the Golf dataset should look like:
To draw the tree, you can use the provided treeplot.py file, or just draw the tree using
Excel or PowerPoint, or draw the tree on a piece of paper and include a scanned copy of
the tree in the report.
3. If you get the correct tree, then apply your algorithm on the Car dataset and draw the
tree.
4. Prepare your submission. Your final submission should be a zip file named as
Assignment4.zip. In the zip file, you should include:
 A folder “Code”, which contains all the codes used in this assignment. If you
change the other functions that you are not asked to change, please have a file
“README” which describes how to run your code.
 Report: A doc or pdf file named as Assignment4.doc or Assignment4.pdf. The
report should consist of the following parts: 1) The tree drawn based on the output
obtained from the Car Dataset using your algorithm. 2) The code of the Decision
Tree algorithm you implement.
5. Log in any CSE department server and submit your zip file as follows:
submit_cse469 Assignment4.zip
Please refer to Course Syllabus for late submission policy and academic integrity policy. We will
take the submission time recorded by the server as the time of your submission. This assignment
must be done independently. Running your submitted code should be able to reproduce the results
in your report.
