Evaluation of Interfaces for IRS: Modelling End-User Searching Behaviour

Victoria Manglano, Micheline Beaulieu, Stephen Robertson
1998 unpublished
This paper describes an investigation in progress into the searching behaviour of end-users and how it is affected by interface design.  ...  that there could be some genuine end-user characteristics which are independent of system and interface design.  ...  In other words, how the interface to an IRS affects the way users search for information and their performance, and how to evaluate systems to show this.  ...

Evaluating interfaces for government metasearch

Paul Thomas, Katherine Noack, Cecile Paris
2010 Proceeding of the third symposium on Information interaction in context - IIiX '10  
Metasearch tools, which combine search results from any number of independent search engines, could be useful in a range of tasks and especially for integrating information from separate government agencies  ...  However, it is not immediately clear what user interfaces might be appropriate for presenting results from more than one source.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS We would like to thank our colleagues in Centrelink for their support and their useful input, and our participants for their time.  ...

Teaching IR: Curricular Considerations [chapter]

Daniel Blank, Norbert Fuhr, Andreas Henrich, Thomas Mandl, Thomas Rölleke, Hinrich Schütze, Benno Stein
2011 Teaching and Learning in Information Retrieval  
Cognitive models and user interfaces Whereas database systems are mostly accessed from application programs, queries to IR systems are typically entered via a user interface.  ...  IR user studies typically provide test users with hypothetical search tasks in order to allow for a comparison.  ...

A decision-theoretic approach to database selection in networked IR

Norbert Fuhr
1999 ACM Transactions on Information Systems  
Thus HCI studies in which participants representing users are invited in to use software will retain a place in IR evaluation e.g. for rapid improvement of the user interface.  ...  Clearly changing the user interface not the underlying IR engine is what is needed, but traditional IR evaluation cannot address this.  ...  Totals for EC funded part of the network and the whole network are shown separately.  ...

On the history of evaluation in IR

Stephen Robertson
2008 Journal of information science  
This paper is a personal take on the history of evaluation experiments in information retrieval.  ...  It describes some of the early experiments that were formative in our understanding, and goes on to discuss the current dominance of TREC (the Text REtrieval Conference) and to assess its impact.  ...  Acknowledgements I am grateful to the following for extremely useful comments on drafts of this paper: Alan Gilchrist, Donna Harman, Ellen Voorhees, Chris Buckley, Bob Oddy, and an anonymous referee.  ...

A task completion framework to support single-interaction IR research

Anton van der Vegt, Guido Zuccon, Bevan Koopman, Peter Bruza
2018 Journal of Documentation  
Originality: This work contributes a novel task-oriented IR conceptual model and evaluation framework, both centred around the concept of BI for siIR.  ...  There are few, if any, IR conceptual models supporting minimal or single-interaction IR (siIR) user scenarios, however the need for siIR systems is growing rapidly.  ...  What is the search task and user group? 2. How do you derive the BI for each search task? 3. What measures are suitable for system evaluation? What is the Search Task and User Group?  ...

New IR - new evaluation: the impact of interaction and multimedia on information retrieval and its evaluation

Stephen W. Draper, Mark D. Dunlop
1997 New Review of Hypermedia and Multimedia  
The emergence into widespread use both of multimedia and of interactive user interfaces has extensive implications for this field and the evaluation methods on which it depends.  ...  One is that between comprehensive models that have a place for every possible relevant factor, and lightweight methods.  ...  We also thank an anonymous reviewer for moving this paper further beyond being a report on Mira and nearer to being an adequate reflection of the field as a whole.
