Abstract

This project studied the correlation between implicit ratings and the explicit rating for a single Web page. A browser was developed to record the user actions (implicit ratings) and the explicit rating of a page. Using the data collected by the browser, the individual implicit ratings and the combined implicit ratings were analyzed and compared with the explicit rating. We found that time spent on a page and scrolling time had a strong correlation with the explicit rating.
