IR systems can improve performance by utilizing information about the entire interactive process of search. This approach has so far only been initially explored [1,2] with much potential for the future. This demonstration describes an extensible data analysis and modelling framework that enables researchers to integrate, explore and analyze interactive experiment data obtained from task-based IIR experiments and build and test models of interactive user behavior.},
