This paper reports a preliminary study addressing two challenges in measuring the effectiveness of information extrac- tion (IE) technology: • Developing a methodology for ex- trinsic evaluation of IE; and, • Estimating the impact of improving IE technology on the ability to per- form an application task. The methodology described can be em- ployed for further controlled experi- ments regarding information extraction.
