allowable response pattern
arnold on Sep 16, 2008
When a response pattern is consistently logical. If its logically inconsistent it is called an error. The greater the number of subjects whose responses conform to the allowable patterns, the more certain we can be that these items form on ordered scale.
This is determined with the coefficient of reproducibility.
total number of errors
c = 1 – ———————–
total number of responses
Is this important? If so then why? In what case would you use it?
