SMM11 — Old measure(ment) names still persist in the document

  • Summary:

    Please add a new issue of the SMM RTF: Old measure(ment) names still persist in the document

    The naming scheme for some measure and measurement classes is not consistent.

    For most measures and their corresponding measurement classes if the measure class is “X”Measure then the measurement class is “X”Measurement. This scheme is followed for all but the Counting measure class and its corresponding Count measurement class. Each should be renamed to CountingMeasure and CountingMeasurement respectively.

    Also, in places the “X”Measure or “X”Measurement is shortened to just “X”. For example in the specification sometimes Ratio is used, and sometimes RatioMeasure. Even the class's section is called "Ratio Class" .. It should be RatioMeasure consistently.

    Regarding Grade: It is, consistently and correctly, GradeMeasure in the model, and often in the document. But not always. There are occurrences in the document where you use Grade, and where it better should be GradeMeasure (or GradeMeasurement, if it is about the measurement side). Sometimes there is just qualitative speak where you can leave it like "grade", but sometimes it is meant as more formal, where it still reads as "grade", e.g. somewhere you talk "grade subclass" (should be GradeMeasure), and sometimes "Grade measure", which should be GradeMeasure, etc. Maybe you find all "grade" occurrences and fix some of them. The same problem might exist wrt Ranking.

  • Disposition: Resolved — SMM 1.1
  • Disposition Summary:

    Replace "Ratio" as name of the ratio measure class with "RatioMeasure".
    Similarly, replace “Counting” with “CountingMeasure” and “Count” with “CountingMeasurement”.
    The naming consistency problem regarding “Grade” has been fixed by the resolution of issue 17535.
