  •     fill measure gaps quickly and in a prioritized way;
  •     use the same measures whenever possible to make measurement more efficient and less burdensome;
  •     get insight and feedback from those that use measures in the field to develop a more formal measure use feedback system;
  •     make measurement information easier to access and understand; and
  •     accelerate initial efforts to support the transition to eMeasures.
