Thanks also go to the TREC program committee and the staff at NIST. The TREC tracks could not happen without the efforts of the track coordinators; our special thanks to them.  ...  The track used the TREC-7 ad hoc topics, and a set of relevance judgments produced by assessors at the Australian National University.  ...  This suggests that user involvement does not need to be extensive The TREC-7 high precision track used the same 50 topics and document set as used in the TREC-7 ad hoc task.  ...

Beaulieu, "Okapi at TREC-7: automatic ad hoc, filtering, VLC and interactive," TREC 7, page 253, 1996.  ...  Calibrating the Slope for Ad Hoc Task Using pivoted document normalization, we tested slope values from 0.01 to 0.9 and measured the average precision for each value.  ...

Comparing citation contexts for information retrieval

Anna Ritchie, Stephen Robertson, Simone Teufel
2008 Proceeding of the 17th ACM conference on Information and knowledge mining - CIKM '08  
construction of a new, realistic test collection of scientific research papers, with references (in the bibliography) and their associated citations (in the running text of the paper) automatically annotated  ...  Chapter 6 presents our experiments: we show that adding citation terms to the full-text of the papers improves retrieval effectiveness by up to 7.4%, that weighting citation terms higher relative to paper  ...  Queries: For the VLC track, each year's Ad hoc topics were used along with the current VLC document collection.  ...

Test Collection Based Evaluation of Information Retrieval Systems

Mark Sanderson
2010 Foundations and Trends in Information Retrieval  
This monograph surveys the research conducted and explains the methods and measures devised for evaluation of retrieval systems, including a detailed look at the use of statistical significance testing  ...  At its core, the modern-day test collection is little different from the structures that the pioneering researchers in the 1950s and 1960s conceived of.  ...  Sormunen [240] re-examined TREC relevance judgments for 38 topics from TREC-7 and 8 using three relevance grades: not relevant, marginally relevant and highly relevant.  ...
