Evaluating user studies in information access

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution book

Abstract

Systems enabling Information Access whether it be; a file browser, a retrieval engine, a mobile device providing content, a personalized agent, etc, need to be evaluated appropriately for the discipline to be considered a science. The problem of how to appropriately evaluate such systems is even more problematic when the evaluation is conducted with human subjects.
