Influences on and Limitations of Classical Test Theory Reliability Estimates.
Arnold, Margery E.
Research in the Schools, v3 n2 p61-74 Fall 1996
This paper explains how different factors affect classical reliability estimates, such as test-retest, interrater, internal consistency, and equivalent forms coefficients. The limitations of classical test theory are explored, and the advantages of generalizability theory are discussed. Concrete examples are used. (SLD)
