Abstract

This study developed and evaluated a tool to reduce scattering of evaluation values caused by the chronological effect attributable to hands-on evaluation of reports. An evaluator's judgment is likely to be overly influenced by the quality of previously read reports. The tool presented herein renders the similarity level of report contents obtained by latent semantic analysis as a map using a multi-dimensional scaling method. Using the device, an evaluator can read and evaluate, en bloc, similar reports with reference to the map. This study examined the cognitive effect of the map on evaluators in comparison of the report evaluation order between a group using the map and a control group not using it. It follows that the order of evaluated reports is more consistent in the group using the map than in the control group, suggesting that the maps should have some cognitive inducement effect.
