### evaluation - Difference between Blue scores and Baseline Bleu score for the model

I created a model using my dataset and got a Bleu score/baseline Bleu score, what is the difference between them?How is the baseline computed? This document does not describe the difference....Read more

### evaluation - Objectively evaluating new GUI toolkits

I was checking out a new GUI toolkit, and my first impression was "wow, this is a lot harder to use than my previous toolkit." But then I wondered, "is it harder because it is unfamiliar, or because there are genuine issues?"What are some techniques for objectively evaluating new GUI toolkits?...Read more

### evaluation - Sum of increasing alternate terms in python

I need to evaluate the finite sum of numbers which are increasing in absolute value, but are alternate. Problem is: the abolute values grow too fast and it starts accumulating numerical errors. These the functions definitions, one (Gj_full) straight to it and the other (Gj) recursively. fact_quo is a simple factorial function. def fact_quo(n, m=1): if (type(n) != int) or (type(m) != int): raise TypeError("Arguments must be integers.") if (n < 0) or (m < 0): raise ValueError("n=" + str(n) + "\t m=" + str(m)) if (n ==...Read more

### evaluation - How would you go about evaluating a programmer?

A few weeks ago, I was assigned to evaluate all our programmers. I'm very uncomfortable with this since I was the one who taught everyone the shop's programming language (they all got out of college not knowing the language and as luck would have it, I'm very proficient with it.). On the evaluation, I was very biased on their performance (perfect scores).I'm glad that our programming shop doesn't require an average performance level but I heard horror stories of shops which do require an average level.My question are as follows: As a programmer...Read more

### Modelica Evaluation Order

I can't really find any answer in the Modelica specification so ill ask you guys. The specification states thatA tool is free to solve equations, reorder expressions and to not evaluate expressions if their values do not influence the result (e.g. short-circuit evaluation of Boolean expressions). If-statements and if-expressions guarantee that their clauses are only evaluated if the appropriate condition is true, but relational operators generating state or time events will during continuous integration have the value from the most recent event...Read more

### operator precedence - Evaluation of APL direct functions

Here is a snippet I was testing recently. It takes two diameters (⍺,⍵) and computes the circumference of a circle:10{(○1×⍺){⍺ ⍵}○1×⍵}10 ⍝ note the brackets around ⍺ 31.4159 31.415910{○1×⍺{⍺ ⍵}○1×⍵}10 31.4159 98.696I would like to understand how evaluation of this expression works - why is the first one evaluating correctly and the second one isn't?I am using Dyalog APL....Read more

### evaluation - Having to set objectives for developers, even though objectives don't work

It is generally accepted that setting measurable objectives for software developers doesn't work , as too much focus on the objectives can lead to behaviour counter to the organisational goals (so-called "measurement dysfunction").However, in my company, we are required to set objectives for all staff, and are encouraged by Human Resources to make them SMART. In the past, my fellow first-level managers (team leads) and I have tried a number of approaches:Set measurable objectives that are additional to the normal job, like "Do training on tech...Read more

### Predictionio evaluation fails with Text Classification template

I am trying to predict a text field based on other text fields on predictionio. I used this guide for reference. I created a new app usingpio app new MyTextAppand followed the guide upto evaluation using datasource provided in template. It was all okay upto evaluation. On evaluating data source I am getting error as pasted below.[INFO] [CoreWorkflow\$] runEvaluation started[WARN] [Utils] Your hostname, my-ThinkCentre-Edge72 resolves to a loopback address: 127.0.0.1; using 192.168.65.27 instead (on interface eth0)[WARN] [Utils] Set SPARK_LOCAL_I...Read more

### evaluation - Math notation understanding

I was reading a paper where I got the following notation which I am finding it difficult to understand especially inside the summation part. Here I see max notation with this condition 1<=j<=k. How this notation with max is interpreted? The value of i changes with summation itself ranging between 1 to the value of Ncm. How is the value of j changing here? Any help here would be highly appreciated....Read more

### What does "top-level evaluation" mean?

What does "top-level evaluation" mean?This term was not defined in the text it was mentioned in. I do not want to tell the specific context, because I am interested only in generic explanations....Read more

### interaction - what are evaluation techniques for HCI projects (without involving users, or psychologist)?

I'm going to choose a topic for my thesis and it will be a HCI project. (human computer interaction).It will be a research project, and I need to think some kind of evaluation for it. I would prefer to not use human users or having to collaborate with psychologist for it.Is there any metric, or evaluation models I could use instead ?thanks...Read more

### Pros and cons of informing students about the outcome of their course’s evaluation

Is it a good practice that a university informs the students of a class about the final outcome (that is, the overall score of the instructor based on the evaluation forms) of their own evaluation of a professor or a course?...Read more

### evaluation - Should previous final exams be released to students?

In general, you can find the past exams for the past 15 years or so at my school. However I had one prof in Calculus III who chose to withhold his exams. This was the only instance in which a prof has chosen to do so in my two years at university studying engineering. His justification was that he didn't want students studying exams rather than the actual course material which I find to be interesting. As a student, I notice that solving past exams from the same instructor as practice can be helpful for a couple of reasons:it helps you get accu...Read more

### How to do on-site institute evaluation as a member of the evaluation panel?

Many academic institutes are routinely evaluated by an advisory board. In addition to the public performance metrics, such as publications and funding, the board usually goes on site to meet the personnel and get a better picture of the institute, its culture and its performance.As a panel member, what information should we try to obtain in priority during the site visit? How should we evaluate what we see and hear, and how much importance should we give it?...Read more

### evaluation - How should we evaluate our peers?

This is a quite broad question, to which I have some personal answers, but I think I need more different perspectives.I am not talking about evaluating a peer's submitted work as a referee, but about evaluating applications ranging from small grants or sabbaticals (which have to be applied to at least in France) to tenure or tenure-track hiring. Such decisions have a small or huge impact on both others career and the overall academic system (by giving certain incentives), and should thus be taken very seriously. On the other hand, the time we a...Read more
