Fiene Key Indicator Coefficients

Below is a graphic that depicts the key thresholds for the use of the Fiene Key Indicator Coefficients in a differential monitoring approach. The graphic provides an illustration of the Fiene Key Indicator (FKI) values and the number of compliant/non-compliant programs by highest and lowest quartiles. It also provides the thresholds for a good licensing rule and a good QRIS: Quality Rating and Improvement System predictor. Licensing researchers and regulatory scientists can use this graphic in making a pass/fail decision tree with their particular rules/regulations/standards determination in constructing a Key Indicator Instrument.
