was therefore employed in order to compensate for this subjectivity.
The remaining 25% of sessions, as well as interobserver reliability
, was coded by the primary investigator in this study.
Intraobserver and interobserver reliability
of waist circumference and waist-to-hip ratio [Letter].
This study will determine which of the following angular measurements--scapholunate, radiolunate, capitolunate angles, or the triangulation method--has the best intraobserver reproducibility and interobserver reliability
in assessing midcarpal alignment.
The results of the intervener and the independent observer were then compared to determine interobserver reliability
scores were obtained by dividing the total number of agreements by the total number of agreements plus disagreements and multiplying by 100.
Training included three steps: (1) instruction followed by demonstration of 80% interobserver reliability
with trainers using videos of classrooms, (2) 80% interobserver reliability
with trainers in actual classroom settings, and (3) ongoing interobserver reliability
between collectors and trainers to address the potential for observer drift.
Another limitation is that for two observation categories, interobserver reliability
was too low.
