pr: Pattern and Level Reliability via Profile Analysis

Description Usage Arguments Details Value References See Also Examples

View source: R/pr.R

Description

The pr function uses subscores from two parallel test forms and computes profile reliability coefficients as described in Bulut (2013).

Usage

1
pr(form1, form2)

Arguments

form1, form2

Two data matrices or data frames; rows represent individuals, columns represent subscores. Both forms should have the same individuals and subscores in the same order. Missing subscores have to be inserted as NA.

Details

Profile pattern and level reliability coefficients are based on the profile analysis approach described in Davison and Davenport (2002) and Bulut (2013). Using the parallel test forms or multiple administration of the same test form, pattern and level reliability coefficients are computed. Pattern reliability is an indicator of variability between the subscores of an examinee and the level reliability is an indicator of the average subscore variation among all examinees. For details, see Bulut(2013)
