When two CSRs are compared, it is important to test what the significance level of the difference is. For this purpose a metric and a statistical test are needed. In this paper we compare several combinations of a metric with a statistical test, in order to find a combination which is suitable for this task. Four combinations which are introduced in this paper appear to be suitable for this task.
