Title
¬A proposed method of measuring the utility of individual information retrieval tools

Abstract
Proposes a new method of evaluating information retrieval systems by concentrating on individual tools in the context of their use, rather than systems as a whole. A tool is a command, its menu or graphic interface equivalent, or a move or stratagem. A user would render an assessment of the relative success of a small part of a search, and every tool used in that part would be credited with a contribution to the result, whether positive or negative. The cumulative scores would provide an assessment of the overall utility of the tool
