NTCIREVAL by Tetsuya Sakai

NTCIREVAL is a toolkit for computing various retrieval effectiveness metrics.
It can be used for NTCIR and TREC ad hoc retrieval evaluation, diversified search evaluation, NTCIR-8 Community QA Task evaluation and so on.

NTCIREVAL can compute metrics such as:
-Average Precision
-Expected Reciprocal Rank (ERR)
-Graded Average Precision (GAP)
-Rank-Biased Precision (RBP)
-Normalised Cumulative Utility (NCU)
-Condensed-List versions of the above metrics
-D#-measures and DIN#-measures for diversity evaluation
-Intent-Aware (IA) metrics and P+Q# for diversity evaluation

For details, please refer to the README file included in the tar file.



(Fixed a bug introduced in 161017; added a few evaluation measures)
