We introduce a new segmentation evaluation measure, WinPR, which resolves some of the limitations of WindowDiff. WinPR distin- guishes between false positive and false nega- tive errors; produces more intuitive measures, such as precision, recall, and F-measure; is in- sensitive to window size, which allows us to customize near miss sensitivity; and is based on counting errors not windows, but still pro- vides partial reward for near misses.
