Agreement between Two Independent Groups of Raters
Vanbelle, Sophie; Albert, Adelin
Psychometrika, v74 n3 p477-491 Sep 2009
We propose a coefficient of agreement to assess the degree of concordance between two independent groups of raters classifying items on a nominal scale. This coefficient, defined on a population-based model, extends the classical Cohen's kappa coefficient for quantifying agreement between two raters. Weighted and intraclass versions of the coefficient are also given and their sampling variance is determined by the Jackknife method. The method is illustrated on medical education data which motivated the research.
