A Reporting Framework for Search Session Evaluation

Cathal Hoare, Humphrey Sorensen


Mobile devices have become ubiquitous, admitting a range of new contexts for information access. Indeed, these devices are now becoming a significant means of conducting information seeking even where desktops and other large screen devices are available. This has required the development of new design patterns that cater for the advantages and disadvantages presented by these devices’ sensors and smaller screens. In turn, understanding how these new features effect information seeking has required development of new evaluation frameworks. This paper presents one such framework, as well as describing our experience when developing and evaluating mobile search user interfaces.


Keywords: Search User Interface Evaluation, Reporting Tools, Mobile User Search Interface Evaluation.
