Table 3.

Classes of specificity of norms with their criteria for assignment.

SpecificityCriteria for assignment to class
High 
  • Indicators or proxies for quantitative measurement

  • Numerical or relative thresholds (for case-specific deduction) for target levels

  • Delineated time frame of goals (optional)

 
Medium 
  • Aspects to be considered when choosing indicators

  • Aspects to be considered when estimating target levels

  • Directly related norms prescribe further interpretation ↑

 
Low 
  • General norm or principle, no specification for indicators or target levels that enable measurement

  • No time frame of goals (optional)

  • Directly related norms prescribe further interpretation ↑
