[pymvpa] General Question about Evaluating Results form a Multiclass Problem

Hi all,
I’m just wondering if anyone has any advice on some ways to deal with evaluating classifier performance on a 4-way problem.
I’ve been using the BayesConfusionHypothesis tool which works quite well, but I just wondered what else was out there by way of quantitative evidence to insure that classifier accuracy isn’t being driven by perfect classification between 2 labels, and confusion between the other 2, or whatever. Just glancing at the confusion matrices can give us a good idea about what ROIs are confusing certain conditions, but a more objective solution would be nice.
The problem seems to be kinda sidestepped in some of the literature on pattern classification in MRI.
