Many studies in biomedical fields are carried out using diagnoses reported by different raters to evaluate the agreement ofmultiple ratings. Themost popular indices of agreement are kappa measures including Cohen’s kappa and weighted kappa for binary and ordinal outcomes, respectively. However, when raters assess the same observation on two ormore occasions, these ratings are dependent and so the correlation between kappa estimates must be consideredwhenmaking inferences. In this paper, we… CONTINUE READING
