    Abstract

    Technology is increasingly being used in education. Children are also increasingly using search engines when searching for information on certain themes. The question of what is a good search system to use in education has still not been answered definitively. In this article we explain the steps Wizenoze takes to build and evaluate a good search system. We split our analysis in the way Cooper already
    proposed in 1971 as the two aspects of relevance: logical relevance and utility.
