Inter-rater Reliability on the Youth Program Quality Assessment

In this study, researchers examine inter-rater reliabilities for the four main scales on the Youth Program Quality Assessment Form A: safe environment, supportive environment, interaction, and engagement. They examine raters’ agreement on observations by using a statistic known as the intraclass
correlation (ICC).  In addition, the authors present inter-rater findings for the Youth PQA in two complementary forms: percent perfect agreement at the lowest level (item) of measurement and Kappa.
