W M. Fisher, Walter S. Liggett Jr, A N. Le, Jonathan G. Fiscus, D S. Pallett


Composition of the 1997 Hub-4 broadcast news test set is discussed. The composition is based on concurrent selection of a statistically equivalent test set for a future evaluation, adjustment of the set to match the training data, and other considerations. This paper discusses both the principles involved and the specific algorithms used.
