angoff: Compute Angoff Coefficient

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) References Examples

Description

Angoff's coefficient is most appropriately used for estimating reliability in tests that can be split into two parts with unequal lengths. The calculation corrects for the inequality of length in the splits. Angoff's coefficient is also believed to handle congeneric test structures relatively well.

Usage

1
2
  angoff(x, split.method = "even.odd",
    missing = "complete", standardize = FALSE)

Arguments

x

Can be either a data matrix or a covariance matrix

split.method

Specify method for splitting items?

missing

How to handle missing values.

standardize

When TRUE Results are standardized by using the correlation matrix instead of the covariance matrix for computation.

Value

angoff

The estimate of reliability.

Split

The split half key used to calculate angoff's coefficient.
