COSC 622 Quiz: Reliability and Validity

  1. A researcher wants to measure internal consistency in a test that measures two different constructs (self-esteem and depression) without subdividing the items into the two construct groupings. Which of the following would be the best method to use in measuring internal consistency?
  2. A researcher wants to measure content-sampling error with a Likert scale test. Which of the following methods would be best?
  3. If the reliability coefficient of a test is determined to be .27, what percentage is attributed to random chance or error?
  4. You are reading about reliability of a test in the test manual and notice that the researchers report using a Spearman-Brown coefficient. You can infer that internal consistency reliability was measured using:
  5. A researcher wants to measure content-sampling error and has two versions of an achievement test available. What measure of estimating reliability would be best in this situation?
  6. The test manual reports a reliability coefficient (r) of .92, which means:
  7. A researcher is concerned with measuring internal consistency reliability and has decided to use the Kuder- Richardson Formulas with a Likert scale test; this is a problem because the:
  8. The SEM for an achievement test is 2.45. Johnny scores 100 and we assume that 68% of the time his true score falls between + 1 SEM; this means the confidence interval would be between:
