Evaluating Agreement Conducting A Reliability Study

Contrary to the validity of parents` and teachers` assessments of expression vocabulary, their reliability is not sufficiently demonstrated, especially with regard to guardians other than parents. Given that a considerable number of young children are regularly cared for outside their families, the ability of different facilitators to enable a reliable assessment of behaviour, performance or performance levels with established tools is relevant for the screening and monitoring of a large number of developmental characteristics (e.g. B Gilmore and Vance, 2007). The few studies that study (inter-consulting) reliability with respect to expression vocabulary are often based exclusively or primarily on linear correlations between the raw values of different evaluators (e.g.B. Using this conservative estimate of the ROI did not find significantly higher rates of identical or divergent ratings for a single subgroup or for the entire study population. (See Table 2 for the results of the relevant binomial tests). Therefore, the likelihood that a child would receive a concurring assessment was not different from chance. Using the study`s own reliability, the probability of obtaining concurring assessments was 100%, which is significantly higher than chance. To assess the evaluators` compliance, we first calculated two reliable exchange indexes (RCIs), one based on the reliability of the ELAN manual tests, the other taking into account the CCI for our study population. Note that while both reliability measures can be used to calculate ROI, they are not equivalent in terms of accuracy and rigor. Test-retest correlations are a very accurate estimate of the reliability of the instrument (compared to a stable construction over time), and the inter-rater reliability rather reflects the accuracy of the evaluation process. The share of (reliable) compliance was assessed on the basis of the two assurance estimates, in order to demonstrate the impact of the choice of fit and proper on the assessment and interpretation of the assessment agreement. In addition to the absolute correspondence share, information on the magnitude of the (reliable) differences and on the possible systematic direction of the differences is also relevant for a comprehensive assessment of the conformity of the assessors.

Therefore, this report takes into account three aspects of compliance: the percentages of credit ratings that reliably differ, if any, the extent to which they differ, and the direction of the difference (i.e.: a systematic reaction of one of the two groups of assessors to the other). . . .
