This is a perl script that takes in all your system generated files, then all your gold standard/reference summary files, and prepares it in the format used by the ROUGE evaluation toolkit. In other words, it prepares the following from the input that you provide:
There are 2 versions of the script, one is output using jackknifing and the other is the usual evaluation without the need for jackknifing.
This is a perl script that helps in interpreting ROUGE scores. If you need Instructions on how to set-up ROUGE for evaluation of your summarization tasks go here.
I have been trying to use the ROUGE toolkit to evaluate one of my research projects but have been finding it really hard to get proper documentation on its usage. So I decided to piece together some information that may be helpful to others. Actually, I learnt the basics of using ROUGE from the MEAD documentation! If you have successfully installed ROUGE and need to set up the evaluation mechanism, read on. If you need information on how to install ROUGE, go through the README file in the the ROUGE package.
