This paper presents the evaluation module integrated in the system called Slot Unification Parser for Anaphora Resolution (SUPAR). This module allows us to evaluate automatically anaphora resolution, which is a very important issue in the current state of the art of anaphora resolution. It can evaluate different kinds of anaphors (e.g. pronouns, definite descriptions, etc.), and it provides a tools that facilitates the anaphoric tagging of texts. The texts to tag anaphorically are independent from the language. Therefore, it can evaluate anaphora resolution in different languages. Presently, we have tagged 921 Spanish pronouns and 1,163 English pronouns. In the future, this module will allow different researches to test their anaphora resolution algorithms on the same texts.
