Title Considerations in the choice of interobserver reliability estimates
Date 1977
Description Two types of interobserver reliability values may be needed in treatment studies in which observers constitute the primary data-acquisition system: trial reilability and the reliability of the composite unit or score which is subsequently analyzed, e.g., daily or weekly session totals. Two approaches to determining interobserver reliability are described: percentage agreement and "correlational" measures of reliability. The interpretation of these estimates, factors affecting their magnitude, and the advantages and limitations of each approach are presented.
