Sensory Panel Performance Evaluation—Comprehensive Review of Practical Approaches

László Sipos, Ákos Nyitrai, Géza Hitka, László Ferenc Friedrich, Zoltán Kókai
2021 Applied Sciences  
A practical overview is given on the available solutions, methods, protocols and software relating to all major panelist and panel measure indices (agreement, discrimination, repeatability, reproducibility  ...  Sensory assessors determine the result of sensory analysis; therefore, investigation of panel performance is inevitable to obtain well-established results.  ...  The selection and training methods to be employed depend on the tasks to intend for the selected assessors and expert sensory assessors [3] . In the present paper we focus on these assessor types.  ...

Aggregation of Multiple Judgments for Evaluating Ordered Lists [chapter]

Hyun Duk Kim, ChengXiang Zhai, Jiawei Han
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Experiment results on ordering sentences for text summarization show that all the three new methods outperform the state of the art average correlation methods in terms of discriminativeness and robustness  ...  Among the three proposed methods, the frequent sequential pattern-based method performs the best due to the flexible modeling of agreements and disagreements among human experts at various levels of granularity  ...  In WCA, the weight on each assessor is based on the overall agreement between the assessor and other assessors.  ...

The effect of threshold priming and need for cognition on relevance calibration and assessment

Falk Scholer, Diane Kelly, Wan-Ching Wu, Hanseul S. Lee, William Webber
2013 Proceedings of the 36th international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '13  
We examine the effect that threshold priming, seeing varying degrees of relevant documents, has on people's calibration of relevance.  ...  Showing documents to assessors in different orderings, however, may lead to different assessment outcomes.  ...  (Topic was included in the analysis due to the strong topic effect on agreement between assessors noted in Section 4.2.)  ...

On the Relation Between Assessor's Agreement and Accuracy in Gamified Relevance Assessment

Olga Megorskaya, Vladimir Kukushkin, Pavel Serdyukov
2015 Proceedings of the 38th International ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval - SIGIR '15  
One of the possible ways of controlling the quality is monitoring inter-assessor agreement level. But does the agreement level really reflect the quality of assessor's judgments?  ...  Namely, we estimate the correlation between assessors' accuracy and agreement in the scope of several workflow designs and investigate which specific workflow features influence the accuracy of judgments  ...  Second, we focus on the impact of discussions on assessors' accuracy, agreement, experience and the overall effectiveness of a workflow.  ...

Clustering around latent variables approach to detect panel disagreement in three–way tea sensory evaluation

DR Fernando, S Samita, TUS Peiris
2020 International Journal of Scientific and Research Publications (IJSRP)  
However, by examining assessor weights it was possible to identify assessors those who were in agreement and those who were in disagreement for each component.  ...  Therefore, CLV3W method is a useful method to detect disagreement between assessors, especially in 3-way data, and it can effectively be used when selecting assessors for sensory evaluation.  ...  panel on one latent weighting strategy effectively to identify assessors who need more training on which subset of attributes.  ...

A Methodology for Evaluating Aggregated Search Results [chapter]

Jaime Arguello, Fernando Diaz, Jamie Callan, Ben Carterette
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
An extensive user study with 13 verticals confirms that, when users prefer one presentation of results over another, our metric agrees with the stated preference.  ...  While most prior work focuses on deciding which verticals to present, the task of deciding where in the Web results to embed the vertical results has received less attention.  ...  Assessors may require more instruction in order to improve agreement on presentation-pairs. Alternatively, more than 4 assessors may be required to see greater convergence.  ...

Relevance judgments between TREC and Non-TREC assessors

Azzah Al-Maskari, Mark Sanderson, Paul Clough
2008 Proceedings of the 31st annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '08  
Several factors contributed to differences in the agreements: the number of retrieved relevant documents; the number of relevant documents judged; system effectiveness per topic and the ranking of relevant  ...  This paper investigates the agreement of relevance assessments between official TREC judgments and those generated from an interactive IR experiment.  ...  Users were given 7 minutes for each topic, and a Latin-Square arrangement utilised to distribute the order of the topics amongst users (to reduce the effects of topic order on results).  ...

Cross-cultural perception of female facial appearance: A multi-ethnic and multi-centre study

Rainer Voegeli, Rotraut Schoop, Elodie Prestat-Marquis, Anthony V. Rawlings, Todd K. Shackelford, Bernhard Fink, Piotr Sorokowski
2021 PLoS ONE  
Linear mixed model analysis revealed main and interaction effects of assessor ethnicity, assessor gender, and photographed participant ("face") ethnicity on age, attractiveness, and health assessments.  ...  Thus, differences in judgments of female facial appearance depend on the ethnicity of the photographed person, the ethnicity of the assessor, and whether the assessor is female or male.  ...  Table 3 reports the main effects and interactions of assessor ethnicity, assessor gender and face ethnicity on perception of facial age and Tables 4-6 present descriptive statistics for age, attractiveness  ...

Johanna Trautmann, Lisa Meier-Dinkel, Jan Gertheiss, Daniel Mörlein, Manabu Sakakibara
2017 PLoS ONE  
The results indicate that sensory quality control can be conducted in a manufacturing environment with constant noise without diminishing the assessors' performance.  ...  Two groups of panelists were selected: a University panel usually working under silent conditions and an abattoir panel usually working on the slaughter line with abattoir noise.  ...  Samples were presented in a randomized order for each assessor/each condition and identified with a three digit code.  ...

Reliable Assessors of Infant Cranial Asymmetry in Child Health Care

Freda Lennartsson, Göran Wennergren, Per Nordin
2015 Open Nursing Journal  
Agreement matrices were devised to illustrate assessor agreement based on both type and degree of cranial asymmetry.  ...  Agreement based on degree of asymmetry was analyzed by calculating AC2 using quadratic weights.  ...  When asymmetry was present according to the reference rater, the assessors detected it, but there was no complete agreement among assessors for any of the five infants with asymmetry.  ...
