Yardstick

Yardstick  [ˈjɑ:dstɪk] n. If you use someone or something as a yardstick, you use them as a standard for comparison when you are judging other people or things.
eg. She had never had a real boyfriend before and so had no yardstick by which to compare Charles’s behavior.
她以前从没有过真正的男朋友,所以没有可参照的标准来对比查尔斯的行为。

所以,yardstick就是衡量标准;评判尺度;准绳的意思,类似的词你还能想到什么呢?
