Often in research in psychology and education, one relies on human judgement to assess, for example if an article should be included or excluded in a systematic literature review, the grade a certain answer or portfolio merits, or if a patient is at risk based upon multiple sources of data. Even when researchers try their very best to and are supported (for example with a checklist or rubric), raters are likely to disagree. This workshop focuses on defining inter-rater reliability, examining the degree of inter-rater reliability in a statistical way and developing pathways to increase inter-rater reliability if need be.
Teaching methods
This will be a workshop in small groups. There will be short lectures and exercises on real cases using statistical packages.
Evaluation methods
The assessment consists of an individual project on real data. Students can chose to do this individual project in French or in English. More information will be provided during the first course.
