Measure Authoring Tool v4.4.0| User Guide
Note: The measure package files use an informative naming convention to indicate if the measure
package is a MAT version 4.3, version 4.0, or version 3.0 measure package. Files using ‘v4_3’ indicate the
measure was packaged after the October 6th, 2015 MAT release and is a MAT version 4.3 measure
package. Files named with ‘v4’ indicate the measure was packaged prior to the October 6th, 2015 MAT
release, but after the July 25th, 2014 release, and is a MAT version 4 measure package. Files including
‘v3’ indicate the measure was packaged prior to July 25, 2014. The example above uses ‘v4_3’ in the
naming convention; therefore, this measure was packaged after the October 6. 2015 MAT release.
By downloading and extracting the contents of the zip file to a single directory, a user can
open a human-readable version of the eMeasure XML file or a SimpleXML file by selecting
the eMeasure XML or Simple XML file name. Please note, the directory structure within the
zip file should be maintained when extracting the documents to the user’s system to
download and extract the contents in a single directory. In addition, the user’s browser
system must be set up to read XML files.
The MAT supports Internet Explorer version 8.0 or above, or Firefox version 36 or above.
Other browsers may be used, but they are not supported by the MAT at this time.
Note: When applicable, the MAT coordinates releases to coincide with QDM updates. The MAT version 3
measure packages contain measure logic using the QDM prior to the QDM version 4, MAT version 4
includes packages using the QDM version 4 through 4.1.2, and the MAT version 4.3 uses the most recent
QDM version 4.2.
