Jeanne asked me to send an email to the list about the conversation we have had about levels of conformance, on the last 2 calls. Please see below...

During the last 2 Silver TF meetings we discussed selecting a range of accessibility from inaccessible to good enough to superior. I suggested we benchmark off of neuropsychological evaluations since they run a myriad of comprehensive tests that rate on a similar scale to determine the functional capacity of individuals. John Foliot liked the idea, and suggested we select 5 levels (3 being not enough, 7 being too many). John also asked me provide insight on how many levels I’ve seen in neuropsyche evals, since I offered to use mine from over the years, as a benchmark. Over the last 24 years I have seen the following 9 levels, in various tests:

Mildly impaired,

Moderately impaired,

Severely impaired,


Low average,

High average,


Very superior.

At the last Silver TF meeting there was consensus for John’s suggestion to select 5 levels.
