Relevance Judgments of Actual Users and Secondary Judges: A Comparative Study.
Janes, Joseph W.; McKinney, Renee
Library Quarterly, v62 n2 p150-68 Apr 1992
This study examined judgments of document relevance made by library science graduate students who were not the originators of the queries for which the documents were retrieved. Although the secondary judgments compared well with those of the original users, it was found that secondary judges used document record fields differently and had a higher threshold of relevance.
