Table 2.3 Differences between tools in summarization assessment
Smith (1978) found that squirrels preferred pecans to acorns.
Smith (1978) conducted a 3x3x3 factorial design to study squirrels. He concentrated on brown squirrels, stating “flying squirrels are just too damn unpredictable to study” (page 54). 1000 squirrels were broken into six groups and given the choice of nuts to eat. 1 group was given nothing but pecans, the other nothing but acorns, and then allowed to switch, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH......

Thus far, there are two main approaches to assessing summaries automatically: learner summary assessment, e.g. SS, Summary Street  and automatic summarization evaluation, e.g. SEE, Summary Evaluation Environment .
Summary Street , is a summary assessment tool to train learners in summarisation abilities. It is focused on human evaluation and provides global scores and learner focused feedback on coherence, cohesion and reiteration. It provides measures on: spelling, summary length, overall score, section coverage, etc. The system is created to give immediate feedback on summaries and it is mainly thought for children.
SEE , is a summary evaluation system that provides scores in grammaticality, coherence and cohesion. The smallest unit of evaluation is the sentence. Evaluation metrics are calculated in terms of recall, coverage, retention and weighted retention and precision and pseudo precision. SEE is mainly focused on the evaluation of precision of automatically generated summaries in NLP context.
