A baseline is a measurement taken at one point in time, against which future scores will be compared. The baseline is usually taken to be the initial measurement but in ongoing treatments fresh baseline scores can be obtained in order to measure subsequent change.

An example might be someone with depression entering into treatment. Their score on the Beck Depression Inventory would be taken at the outset and subsequent scores would indicate if the therapy was effective or not.
