This study presents a general framework for single-administration reliability methods, such as Cronbach’s alpha, Guttman’s lambda-2, and method MS. This general framework was used to derive a new approach to estimating test-score reliability by means of the unrestricted latent class model. This new approach is the latent class reliability coefficient (LCRC). Unlike other single-administration reliability methods, LCRC places few restrictions on the item scores. A simulation study showed that if… CONTINUE READING
