How to measure accuracy of analyst recommendations - on the fx/rates/bond/structured products

Does anybody have any idea about academia's approach to measuring accuracy of recommendations in the FI market (fx/rates)? I know that II does a ranking and uses a methodology for ranking credit analysts - but need to understand the logic behind the ranking model.

Any pointers to other debt analyst ranking methodologies - especially those published by academia and used widely would be appreciated.
