Nonattending Respondent Effects on Internal Consistency of Self-Administered Surveys: A Monte Carlo Simulation Study.
Barnette, J. Jackson
Educational and Psychological Measurement, v59 n1 p38-46 Feb 1999
Investigated the effects of types and prevalence of response patterns that might be provided by nonattending respondents on Cronbach's alpha (L. Cronbach, 1970) using three simulated data sets. Effects were greater as a function of increased prevalence in the respondent group, but as few as 5% of some types of nonattending patterns had inflating effects on alpha. Contains 15 references.
