Estimation of Internal Consistency Reliability When Test Parts Vary in Effective Length.
Feldt, Leonard S.; Charter, Richard A.
Measurement and Evaluation in Counseling and Development, v36 n1 p23-27 Apr 2003

This article presents a criterion for abandoning alpha and an approach for computing a more appropriate estimate of reliability, the Gilmer-Feldt coefficient. (Author)
