Semeval 2017 Task 4: Sentiment Analysis in Twitter

Subtask C: Topic-Based Message Polarity Classification

Given a message, classify sentiment conveyed in the tweet towards the topic on a five-point scale (-2,-1,0,1,2).

Evaluation Criteria

For Subtask C, we use macroaveraged mean absolute error as the main measure and a secondary measure, namely, an extension of macroaveraged recall for ordinal regression (Sebastiani, 2016). This will provide better consistency with Subtasks A and B
