Definition: Politimetrics is both the cause and the result of a political decision about the appropriate psychometrics to use when establishing cutpoints and other criteria for success.

What This Means: Most decisions about where to set the score for proficiency, how many credits to require for graduation, or what score qualifies a student to enroll in a special program are made through a combination of science (psychometrics) and policy (politics). Neither the pure psychometricians nor the pure politicians should make those decisions independent of the data and wisdom of the other.
