Technical Summary This memo provides clear definitions for Active and Passive performance assessment. The construction of Metrics and Methods can be described as Active or Passive. Some methods may use a subset of both active and passive attributes, and we refer to these as Hybrid Methods. Working Group Summary The document was extensively discussed in the working group, and was written in direct response to confusion about the terms it defines in other discussions within the WG. It has been well reviewed and there exists no controversy about it. Document Quality The document is of high quality, succinctly defining the terms it sets out to, and explaining them with useful examples. That's probably as much as we can expect from a document about definitions. Personnel Brian Trammell is the document shepherd. Spencer Dawkins is the responsible AD.
