Assignment 3 Reliability Clerical Test Reliability of measurement refers to the consistency of measurement of an attribute. To check for consistency, this case measured for two separate times, Time 1 and a week later for Time 2. Coefficient Alpha The main measurement is the coefficient alpha, which should be at least .80 for a measure to have an acceptable degree of reliability. Results for the Clerical tests are . 85 for Time 1 and .86 for Time 2—these results are acceptable because they are at least .80. Test Retest Test retest is the average of two different time periods that are correlated to each other. The r is calculated on total test scores, or it can be separated. The result of r indicates the stability of measurement, the higher the r, the more stable the measure. For this case, there is only one test-retest for Time 2 at .92 which is statistically significant. This test should be used for future testing. Conclusion Between the coefficient alpha and test-retest, the results are reliable and are statistically significant. This method of testing should be used to hire future employees.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
