A framework for information quality assessment
Abstract One cannot manage information quality (IQ)One cannot manage information quality (IQ) without first being able to measure it meaningfully and establishing a causal connection between the source of IQ change, the IQ problem types, the types of activities affected, and their implications. In this article we propose a general IQ assessment framework. In contrast to context-specific IQ assessment models, which usually focus on a few variables determined by local needs, our framework consists of comprehensive typologies of IQ problems, related activities, and a taxonomy of IQ dimensions organized in a systematic way based on sound theories and practices. The framework can be used as a knowledge resource and as a guide for developing IQ measurement models for many different settings. The framework was validated and refined by developing specific IQ measurement models for two large-scale collections of two large classes of information objects: Simple Dublin Core records and online encyclopedia articles. records and online encyclopedia articles.

Conclusion "In this article, we introduced a general "In this article, we introduced a general framework for IQ assessment. The framework consists of the typologies of IQ variance, the activities affected, a comprehensive taxonomy of IQ dimensions along with general metric functions, and methods of framework operationalization. The framework establishes causal connections among the sources of IQ variance attributable to potential IQ problem structures and types of activities, and it provides a simple and powerful predictive mechanism to study IQ problems and reason through them in a systematic and meaningful way. The framework can serve as a valuable knowledge resource and guide for the rapid and inexpensive development of specific IQ measurement models in many different settings by suggesting relevant IQ dimensions, trade-off relations, relevant general metric functions, and methods of operationalization. The framework has been successfully applied to develop IQ measurement models for two large-scale collections of two large classes of information objects, DC records, and encyclopedia articles."
