Issue:

How do I calculate scores from a PLS or PLSDA model?
Possible Solutions:

Because of the unique relationship between weights and loadings in a PLS model, the calculation of scores for new data does not simply involve a projection onto the loadings,as it does with PCR or PCA (i.e., Tnew = XnewP) . Given new data, Xnew, the scores for these new samples are instead calculated using:
T_{new} = X_{new}W(P^{T}W)^{1}where W is the matrix of PLS model weights and P is the matrix of PLS model loadings.
In Matlab notation, this can be done using:
scores = x*W*pinv(P'*W)where x is the new data. Given a standard model structure from PLS_Toolbox named "model" the following defines W and P:
P = model.loads{2,1} W = model.wts
