Measure testing

Measure testing is empirical analysis to assess the evaluation criteria (e.g., importance, feasibility, scientific acceptability - reliability and validity, usability and use) of a measure as specified. It includes analysis of issues posing threats to the validity of conclusions about quality of care such as exclusions, risk adjustment/stratification for outcome and resource use measures, methods to identify differences in performance, and comparability of data sources/methods.
