Understanding Measurement: Reliability

J. Patrick Meyer

Oxford University Press

Absolutely no judgment or evaluation should be included when reporting a reliability analysis. Estimates should speak for themselves and it is the task of the readers to judge their values. The discussion should focus on limitations of analysis. In this chapter, example discussions for the Benchmark Assessment of English Language Arts (ELA), the Palmetto Achievement Challenge Test (PACT) of mathematics, and the MSCAN are provided. Several books for future reading are recommended. These include books on classical test theory. Some of the recommended book include Theory of Mental Tests by Gulliksen, Statistical Theories of Mental Test Scores by Lord and Novick, and Reliability for the Social Sciences: Theory and Applications by Traub. The chapter also advises that reading be done on original references so that one can read the original words of the author. Other references are given after this chapter.

Keywords:   judgment, evaluation, reliability analysis, ELA, PACT, MSCAN, classical test theory, recommendations
