The Effect of Some Environmental Factors on Interobserver Agreement.
Fradenburg, Linda A.; And Others
Research in Developmental Disabilities, v16 n6 p425-37 Nov-Dec 1995
This study, involving five college students observing behavior of individuals with mental retardation, found that interobserver agreement was better in the presence of certain stimuli (such as when the subject's peers were present versus when they were not). Of 10 additional variables thought to potentially affect agreement scores, 1 (can't see, can't hear) correlated significantly with differences in interobserver agreement. (Author/JDD)
