Interobserver Agreement and Disagreement in Continuous Recording Exemplified by Measurement of Behavior State.
Mudford, Oliver C.; Hogg, James; Roberts, Jessica
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v102 n1 p54-66 Jul 1997
Continuous observational recording over 57 hours evaluated behavior states of three adults with profound and multiple disabilities. Two independent observers also recorded for 22 hours. Although overall percentage agreement was satisfactory (above 80%), agreement on occurrence was unsatisfactory (mean of 65%). Agreement data were superimposed on participants' behavior state profiles to demonstrate data analysis despite their generally inadequate reliability. (Author/DB)
