This paper reports progress in development of evaluation methodologies for natural language systems. Without a com- mon classification of the problems in natural language under- standing authors have no way to specify clearly what their systems do, potential users have no way to compare different systems and researchers have no way to judge the advan- tages or disadvantages of different approaches to developing systems.
