Value of Search Results As a Whole As the Best Single Measure of Information Retrieval Performance.
Su, Louise T.
Information Processing & Management, v34 n5 p557-79 Sep 1998
Discusses value of search results as a whole, a measure which asks for a user's rating of the usefulness of a set of search results based on a Likert scale, and suggests that this measure provides a simple way for system comparison and eliminates problems of information-retrieval evaluation with multiple measures.
