Default Re: Does a test set exist?

In my experience, a one-use-only test set usually does not exist in the real applications, given that "one-use-only" is arguably too luxurious in any application. When multiple tests are conducted on the same test set, the set becomes closer to a "validation" set than a test set. But anyway, IMHO those are just naming issues. The important thing is to know that every use on a set can cause some sort of "contamination."

Hope this helps.
