Kappa as a Parameter of a Symmetry Model for Rater Agreement.
Schuster, Christof
Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics, v26 n3 p331-42 Fall 2001
If two raters assign targets to categories, the ratings can be arranged in a two-dimensional contingency table. This article presents a model for the frequencies in such a contingency table for which Cohen's kappa is a parameter. Illustrates the model using data from a study of the psychobiology of depression.
