Correlated Errors in True Score Models and Their Effect on Coefficient Alpha.
Green, Samuel B.; Hershberger, Scott L.
Structural Equation Modeling, v7 n2 p251-70 2000
Proposes true score models that can account for correlated errors and their effect on coefficient alpha. These models allow random measurement errors on earlier items to affect directly or indirectly the scores on later items. Conditions under which coefficient alpha may yield spuriously high estimates or reliability are discussed. (SLD)
