Scale Reliability, Cronbach's Coefficient Alpha, and Violations of Essential Tau-Equivalence with Fixed Congeneric Components.
Raykov, Tenko
Multivariate Behavioral Research, v32 n4 p329-53 1997
The population discrepancy between Cronbach's Coefficient Alpha (L. Cronbach, 1951) and scale reliability with fixed congeneric measure, uncorrelated errors, and sampling of subjects was studied. The difference is expressed in terms of the individual component violations of the assumption of equal tau-equivalence that is necessary and sufficient for Alpha to equal composite reliability. (SLD)
