This paper describes a user study where hu- mans interactively train automatic text clas- sifiers. We attempt to replicate previous re- sults using multiple ?average? Internet users instead of a few domain experts as annotators. We also analyze user annotation behaviors to find that certain labeling actions have an im- pact on classifier accuracy, drawing attention to the important role these behavioral factors play in interactive learning systems.
