It takes into account the structureof the hierarchy by measuring the cognitive challenge of determiningthe correct path in the hierarchy as well as the reduction in search timeaorded by hierarchy. The goal is to propose a general-purpose measurethat can be applied in dierent application contexts, allowing dierenthierarchical arrangements of content to be quantitatively assessed||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||Springer||Series/Report no.:||Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 10456)||Copyright (published version):||2017 Springer||Keywords:||Markov decision processes; Hierarchy navigation||DOI:||10.1007/978-3-319-65813-1_12||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Conference Details:||8th International Conference of the CLEF Association, CLEF 2017, Dublin, Ireland, September 11–14 2017||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ie/|
