Benefits and Uses of Interobserver Agreement

benefits-and-uses-of-interobserver-agreement

 

There are several benefits and uses of interobserver agreement.  First it can be used for determining the competence of a new observer.  Next it can detect observer drift if used over the course of a study.  Also if two or more observers consistently obtain similar data it increases the confidence that the definition of the target behavior was clear.  Lastly for studies that employ multiple observers as data collectors, consistently high levels of IOA increase confidence that variability in the data is not a function of which observer recorded the data and therefore changes in the data more likely reflect actual changes in the behavior.
