Review and Update of Guidance for Evaluating Evidence and Measure Testing - Technical Report 

Date of Publication:
OCT 2013
Associated Project:
Measure Evaluation Guidance
The purpose of this project, and the subsequent report, was to review the implementation of the 2011 guidance on evaluating evidence and measure testing (including eMeasure testing requirements) and to propose modifications to address any major challenges. Modifications that would potentially increase consistency and clarity in the evaluation of performance measures for potential NQF endorsement also were considered. This report provides specific algorithms to guide the evaluation of evidence, reliability, and validity. The updated guidance does not change the criteria for endorsement; it is intended to provide greater clarity and promote greater consistency in evaluating performance measures against the NQF criteria.
