Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression: Reliability and Validity of Judgments of Novice Raters.
O'Hara, Michael W.; Rehm, Lynn P.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v51 n2 p318-19 Apr 1983
Used the intraclass correlation coefficient to estimate the interrater reliability of judgments of clinician and novice raters of depressed females (N=20) who took the Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression (HRSD). Expert and student raters both made reliable ratings on the HRSD. Criterion validity for student raters was also satisfactory. (Author/JAC)
