Another LRE project, COBALT, collaborated with the TEMAA project in an attempt to evaluate the EAGLES/TEMAA framework proposals by confronting them with the evaluation methods actually used in the COBALT project. COBALT works on message routing. News articles in the financial domain are automatically analysed and classified at two levels of classification to discover whether they are of potential interest to one or other of two user communities. The evaluation methods used for the different components of the system and for the system as a whole were analysed using the EAGLES framework as a way of structuring the analysis. The exercise proved very useful to all parties and confirmed that the EAGLES way of thinking about evaluation provided a constructive approach to designing evaluation methodologies also in the context of project evaluation.
