Sample Compositions and Variabilities in Published Studies versus Those in Test Manuals: Validity of Score Reliability Inductions.
Vacha-Haase, Tammi; Kogan, Lori R.; Thompson, Bruce
Educational and Psychological Measurement, v60 n4 p509-22 Aug 2000
Investigated how dissimilar in composition and variability samples inducting reliability coefficients from prior studies were from the cited prior samples from which coefficients were generalized. Results from 20 articles show that citing reliability coefficients from prior studies as the basis for concluding new scores are reliable is only modestly plausible only when there is direct comparison of the compositions and Variabilities.
