Using cross-evaluation to evaluate interactive QA systems

  title={Using cross-evaluation to evaluate interactive QA systems},
  author={Ying Sun and Paul B. Kantor and Emile L. Morse},
In this article, we report on an experiment to assess the possibility of rigorous evaluation of interactive questionanswering (QA) systems using the cross-evaluation method. This method takes into account the effects of tasks and context, and of the users of the systems. Statistical techniques are used to remove these effects, isolating the effect of the system itself. The results show that this approach yields meaningful measurements of the impact of systems on user task performance, using a… CONTINUE READING
