Figure 4 is a fFlowchart of measure selection process:
Early stage: under ideal conditions, which measures would the CVE like to report? That leads to six measures, numbered 1 through 6.
Middle stage: for which measures are the data necessary for measure construction available to the CVE? Measures are narrowed down to 1, 2, 4, and 6.
Late stage: for which measures is the amount of performance misclassification due to chance acceptable to CVE stakeholders? Measures are narrowed down to 2 and 6, which are included in a public report.
