A Note on the Relation between Coefficient Alpha and Guttmans's "Split-Half" Lower Bounds.
Jackson, Paul H.
Psychometrika, v44 n2 p251-52 Jun 1979
Use of the same term "split-half" for division of an n-item test into two subtests containing equal (Cronbach), and possibly unequal (Guttman), numbers of items sometimes leads to a misunderstanding about the relation between Guttman's maximum split-half bound and Cronbach's coefficient alpha. This distinction is clarified. (Author/JKS)
