Abstract
Relevance judgements used to evaluate the performance of information retrieval systems are known to vary among judges and to vary under certain conditions extraneous to the relevance relationship between queries and documents. Investigates the degree to which variations in relevance judgements affect the evaluation of retrieval performance. Four sets of relevance judgements were used to test the retrieval effectiveness of 6 document representations. In no case was there a noticeable or material difference in retrieval performance due to variations in relevance judgement. Detailed examination of reasons why variations in relevance judgements may not affect recall and precision
