We study the use of Confidence Measures (CM) for erroneous constituent discrimination in an Interactive Predictive Parsing (IPP) framework. The IPP framework al- lows to build interactive tree annotation systems that can help human correctors in constructing error-free parse trees with little effort (compared to manually post-editing the trees obtained from an auto- matic parser). We show that CMs can help in detecting erroneous constituents more quickly through all the IPP process. We present two methods for precalculat- ing the confidence threshold (globally and per-interaction), and observe that CMs remain highly discriminant as the IPP process advances.
