Main result (preliminary):
Y axis is here coded as the fraction of the sumscore metric, which is in concordance for binary outcomes, and correlation for continuous outcomes. Thus, we see that ridge (l2 penalization) outperforms the others every time, and usually categorical item coding outperforms binary coding.
