This chapter surveys the existing attempts to characterize the legitimate inaccuracy measures. It considers characterizations due to James M. Joyce as well as the characterization offered by Hannes Leitgeb and Richard Pettigrew. In each case, some of the assumptions required for the characterization are seen to be unjustified.

Keywords:   Scoring rule, inaccuracy measure, James M. Joyce, epistemic dilemmas
