This paper presents some methodological observations on the measurement of performance in Visual Information Retrieval systems. The paper identifies three different types of measures tow of which can be determined with methods inherited from physical and social sciences respectively. The third model is more typical of the design and construction of complicated systems, since it allows us to measure the performance of individual modules before their insertion in a particular application. This paper present some methodologies for the decontextualized evaluation, anchoring them to a case study of evaluation of several subsystems of an image database.
