verifacation of calibration method

There are  different calibration methods
1) classic 12-term error model(forward and reverse)
2) 8-term error model (TRL,Unknown Tru,etc)
3) 16-term error model
The 12-term error model calibate forward and reverse direction seperately. The 8-term error model ignore the crosstalk and have some redundancy.The 16-term error model is more complete and better for leakage environment.But the derived homogeneous system of equations  have singularity in mathematic computation.

I want to study on another 12-term error model for VNA calibration.
How can I  verify and evaluate the precision of  calibration?
