Manski, Charles F.; Newman, John; Pepper, John V.
Evaluation Review, v26 n4 p355-81 Aug 2002
Considers how performance standards should be set and applied in the face of problems caused by auxiliary outcomes (outcomes other than those of interest) and counterfactual outcomes (the threshold standard not observed). Makes the case that the proper way to implement standards varies with the prior information an evaluator can credibly bring to bear to compensate for incomplete outcome data. (SLD)
