I don't know what you mean by performance value.
I recommend ALWAYS standardizing your inputs
[ xtrn, mu, std ] = zscore(Xtrn')'; xval = (Xvalmu)./std; xtst = (Xvalmu)./std;
AND, standarizing your outputs if they are not binary.
If your current "performance value" is MSE , then normalize it with MSE00 = mean(var(T,1)) to get
NMSE = MSE/MSE00 R2 = 1MSE/MSE00
See the recent post on ANN_Error Goal
Hope tis helps.
