# Check Prediction Input For Lower-level Scoring Functions

Source:`R/input-check-helpers.R`

`check_predictions.Rd`

Helper function to check inputs for lower-level score functions.

## Arguments

- predictions
an object with predictions. Depending on whether

`class = vector`

or`class = "matrix"`

this can be either a vector of length n (corresponding to the length of the true_values) or a nxN matrix of predictive samples, n (number of rows) being the number of data points and N (number of columns) the number of Monte Carlo samples- true_values
A vector with the true observed values of size n

- type
character, one of "continuous" (default), "integer" or "binary" that defines the type of the forecast

- class
character, either "vector" (default) or "matrix" that determines the class the input has to correspond to
