Overview of the INEX 2008 Interactive Track

By Nils Pharo, Ragnar Nordlie and Khairun Nisa Fachry


This paper presents the organization of the INEX 2008 interactive track. In this year’s iTrack we aimed at exploring the value of element retrieval for two different task types, fact-finding and research tasks. Two research groups collected data from 29 test persons, each performing two tasks. We describe the methods used for data collection and the tasks performed by the participants. A general result indicates that test persons were more satisfied when completing research task compared to fact-finding task. In our experiment, test persons regarded the research task easier, were more satisfied with the search results and found more relevant information for the research tasks
