Setting standards, known also as cutoff scores, is essential to any measurement and evaluation practice. This presentation will provide a comprehensive review of the science and art of setting standards in kinesiology. After a brief introduction to norm- and criterion-referenced frameworks and related methods and statistics, the presentation will focus on the latest developments and remaining challenges in setting standards. Practical examples in kinesiology will be illustrated, and future research directions will be outlined.
