TYPES OF RELIABILITY ESTIMATES
 Using Two Sets of Scores
 Test-Retest Reliability
 Alternate-form Reliability/parallel-form
 Using One Set of Scores
 Split-half Reliability
 Inter-item correlations or Internal Consistency/Homogeneity
correlations
 Inter-Scorer/Inter-rater reliability
SARMIENTO, MICAH NICOLE V. 3PSY7
ESTIMATING RELIABILITY USING TWO SETS OF SCORES
 Pearson's correlation coefficient is the reliability coefficient calculated for
these type of reliability estimates.
 The Pearson correlation coefficient measures the strength of
relationships between variables strength between variable. This formula is
often referred to as the Pearson R test. 𝑥1 = scores in one set
𝑥2 = scores in other set

## σ 𝑥1 𝑥2 − 𝑥1ҧ 𝑥ҧ2 σ 𝑥1 𝑥2 = sum of each 𝑥1 score times its

corresponding 𝑥2 score
𝑟𝑥𝑥 =
𝜎𝑥1 𝜎𝑥2 𝑥ҧ1 = mean of the X scores
𝑥ҧ 2 = mean of the Y scores
𝜎𝑥1 = SD of the X scores
𝜎𝑥2 = SD of the Y scores

##  Using Two Sets of Scores

 Test-Retest Reliability
 Alternate-form Reliability/parallel-form

## SARMIENTO, MICAH NICOLE V. 3PSY7

TEST-RETEST RELIABILITY

##  Evaluates or determines how much error in a test score is due to problems

with test administration or conditions by administering it at two
different times
(e.g. extraneous variables during the testing time)
 Administer the same test to the same participants on two different
occasions.
 Correlate the test scores of the two administrations of the same test.
 It is an index of stability. It yields a coefficient of stability.
 Keywords: TIME, SAME TEST
SARMIENTO, MICAH NICOLE V. 3PSY7
TEST-RETEST RELIABILITY
 Procedure:
 Administering a test to a group of individuals
 Re-administering the same test to the same group at some later time
 Correlating the first set of scores with the second
o Length of interval is greatly considered
• is based on research/beliefs about the stability of the characteristic
• The interval is crucial.

 Alternate-form Reliability/parallel-form

## SARMIENTO, MICAH NICOLE V. 3PSY7

ALTERNATE-FORM RELIABILITY/PARALLEL-FORM RELIABILITY

DIFFERENCES:
 PARALLEL FORMS
- Each form of the test, the means and the variances of observed test scores are equal
- Means correlate equally to the true score
- Correlate equally with other measures
 ALTERNATE FORMS
- Simply different versions of a test that have been constructed so as to be parallel
- Do no meet the requirements for the legitimate designation parallel
- Typically designed to be equivalent with respect to variables such as content and level
of difficulty SARMIENTO, MICAH NICOLE V. 3PSY7
ALTERNATE-FORM RELIABILITY/PARALLEL-FORM RELIABILITY

DIFFERENCES:
 PARALLEL FORMS
- Refers to an estimate of the extent to which item sampling and other
errors have affected test scores on versions of the same test when, for
each for of the test, the means and variances of observed test scores are equal
 ALTERNATE FORMS
- Refers to an estimate of the extent to which these different forms of the
same test have been affected item sampling error, or other error

## SARMIENTO, MICAH NICOLE V. 3PSY7

ALTERNATE-FORM RELIABILITY/PARALLEL-FORM RELIABILITY

SIMILARITIES:
 Used to assess the consistency of the results of two tests constructed in the
same way from the same content domain (similar form, content, and level
of difficulty)
 To determine whether scores will generalize across different sets of items or
tasks
 The two forms of the test are correlated to yield a coefficient of
equivalence
 Determines how comparable are two different versions of the same measure.
 KEYWORDS: TWO TESTS, EQUIVALENT
SARMIENTO, MICAH NICOLE V. 3PSY7
ALTERNATE-FORM RELIABILITY/PARALLEL-FORM RELIABILITY

##  Procedure: administer two tests that measure the same

knowledge or characteristics at the same time, one following
the other, or after a relatively short time interval, and correlate
between scores on the two forms

SPLIT-HALF RELIABILITY
 Dividing a single test or split into two half-tests
 to create two separate forms (assessing the same domain)
 Treats the halves as “alternate forms” or “mini-parallel-forms”
 the two halves would need to be as similar as possible
or as nearly equal as humanly possible in format, stylistic, statistical, and
related aspects.
 yields coefficient of correlation; equivalence of the TWO
HALVES

SPLIT-HALF RELIABILITY

##  Can be divided in many ways such as

 Odd-even split (Odd-even reliability)
 Random assignment
 Test should not be divided in the middle.

SPLIT-HALF RELIABILITY

PROCEDURE:

 A measure used to evaluate the internal consistency of a test
that focus on the degree of difference that exists between item
scores.

AVERAGE PROPORTIONAL DISTANCE (APD)

## 1.Calculate the absolute difference between scores for all of the

INTER-SCORER/INTER-RATER RELIABILITY
 assesses the degree of agreement between two or more
raters in their appraisals.
 For subjective methods of scoring
 Variously referred to as scorer reliability, judge reliability,
observer reliability
 To calculate: Give the results from one test administration to
two evaluators and correlate the two markings from the
different raters.
