In this paper we propose a new method for evaluating systems that extract temporal information from text. It uses teporal closure 1 t reward relations that are equivalent but distinct. Our metric measures the overall performance of systems wi a single score, making comparison between different systems straightforward. Our approach is easy to implement, intuitive, acurate, scalable and computationally inexpensive.
