Interobserver reliability

If the observations are recorded, the aspects of interest can be coded by two or more people. If both (or more) observers give the same scores to the observed material (this can be done by calculating a correlation between the scores) there is high interobserver reliability.

To increase interobserver reliability, the observers must receive clear instructions. They may even need to be trained to correctly assess the material to be observed.

My goal is to teach you how to conduct good research.


Good research provides you with better information.
With better information, you can make better decisions.
With better decisions, you can create a healthier, wealthier and freer world,
for people, fauna and flora, for current and future generations.

That is why I think it is important that  you know how to do your research well.
