This document is an introductory guide to the Evaluation and Report Language (EARL) 1.0. EARL is a vocabulary, the terms of which are defined across a set of specifications and technical notes, that is used to describe test results. The primary motivation for developing this vocabulary is to facilitate the exchange of test results between Web accessibility evaluation tools in a vendor-neutral and platform-independent format. It also provides reusable terms for generic quality assurance and validation purposes. While this document describes the motivations for EARL and provides an introduction to its uses, other specifications define the core terms of the vocabulary, Evaluation and Report Language (EARL) 1.0 Schema, and provide additional terms for representing HTTP exchanges between clients and servers, HTTP Vocabulary in RDF 1.0, for representing web content itself, Representing Content in RDF 1.0, or for specifying particular locations within or sections of content, Pointer methods in RDF 1.0. An Evaluation and Report Language (EARL) Overview is also available.
