Following the withdrawal of the filtering track from the latest TREC conferences, there is a niche for new evaluation standards. Towards this end, we suggest, based on variations of TREC's routing subtask, two new evaluation methodologies. The first can be used for evaluating single, multi-topic profiles and the second for testing the ability of a multi-topic profile to adapt to both modest variations and radical drifts in user interests.
