Every team working on information retrieval software struggles with the task of evaluating how well their system performs in terms of search quality(currently and historically). Evaluating search quality is important both to understand and size the improvement or regression of your search application across the development cycles, and to communicate such progress to relevant stakeholders. In the industry, and especially in the open source community, the landscape is quite fragmented: such requirements are often achieved using ad-hoc partial solutions that each time require a considerable amount of development and customization effort. To provide a standard, unified and approachable technology, we developed the Rated Ranking Evaluator (RRE), an open source tool for evaluating and measuring the search quality of a given search infrastructure. RRE is modular, compatible with multiple search technologies and easy to extend.
