Stability of Nominal Categories Over Readers, Over Time.
Phillips, Donald L.; And Others
The consistency across time and readers of the scoring of National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) open-ended exercises was examined. The procedure studied is a nominal categorical scoring. Ten readers independently read 28 sample responses to each of 12 open-ended exercises at three different times. All ten readers agreed on their assignment on about 75 percent of the sample responses. About 89 percent of the time a reader agreed on the category assignment from one reading to another. (Author) Primary type of information provided by report: Procedures (Scoring).
