Regions and Levels: Measuring and Mapping Users' Relevance Judgments.
Spink, Amanda; Greisdorf, Howard
Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology, v52 n2 p161-73 Jan 15, 2001
Investigates the regions across a distribution of users' relevance judgments. A multidimensional instrument was designed using four scales for collecting, measuring, and describing end-user relevance judgments, and was administered to 21 end-users who conducted searches on their own information problems and made relevance judgments on a total of 1059 retrieved items. Findings provide implications for relevance theory and the evaluation of information retrieval systems. (Contains 40 references.) (AEF)
