Ontologies are increasingly used in various fields such as knowledge management, information extraction, and the semantic web. Ontology evaluation is the problem of assessing a given ontology from the point of view of a particular criterion of application, typically in order to determine which of several ontologies would best suit a particular purpose. In this paper, we propose a pricing model that allows using a number of different ontologies and assessing their performance on specific issues. We suggest an approach for evaluating the ontology based on a golden standard guided by a question generator. Following this scheme, we present the results of an experiment to test and gradually increase the performance of ontologies.
