4.5.1 Multiple Outcome Measures

The SEP should describe how the evaluation design will consider the use of multiple outcome measures and potential problems that might result. When multiple outcome measures are specified, evaluators need to consider errors that may develop in comparing them. If the proposal has confirmatory research questions, describe adjustments made to reduce the chance of a Type-I error (incorrectly rejecting a confirmed hypothesis). Techniques that can be used to adjust for such a possibility are the ordering of multiple outcomes (primary, secondary, etc.) and accordingly adjusting the p-values for each outcome, or the use of a statistical procedure such as a Bonferroni adjustment.
