In this position paper, I discuss the idea of using these sequences to evaluate one facet of the overall user experience. Such sequences can be considered a generalization of rankings used to evaluate Information Retrieval System, but can be generated by any Information Access System. While this view provides greater flexibility for evaluating and comparing different Information Access Systems, it also raises many other issues regarding their application for evaluation. This paper provides an overview of some of these issues along with possible directions for using sequences of documents to evaluate Information Access Systems.</ABSTRACT></RECORD></RECORDS></XML>
