Abstract:This study explores the adoption of multi-level modeling to analyze query reformulation data. Thus far, the dependency among query reformulations within the same search session has not been adequately treated in the experimental design. This has limited the analysis of users’ query behavior. This study introduces multi-level modeling to query reformulation data analysis. Multi-level modeling is capable of handling the correlations among query reformulations and provides an avenue to analyzing the nested data structure. A demonstration of fitting query reformulation data to two types of multi-level models is provided. The method introduced in this study provides a potential solution to the analysis of query reformulations.
