IOA intervals for intervals. In short, the interval interval method assesses the proportion of intervals in which both observers agreed to determine whether the target reaction occurred. Note that this implies agreement on attendance and lack of response. This is calculated by adding the total number of agreed intervals to the sum of agreed intervals and divided at regular intervals. Not surprisingly, this approach often leads to high convergence statistics. As Cooper et al. (2007) reports, this is especially true when partial interval recordings are used. In the examples in Figure 2, observers disagree on the first and seventh intervals, resulting in an interval agreement value of 71.4% (5/7). Trial-by-trial: compares the agreement between the different discrete studies, instead of the total number, the idea that practicing behavioural analysts should collect and report the reliability or agreement of interobservi (IOA) in behavioural assessments is demonstrated by the Statement of the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB) that behavioural analysts are responsible for the use of “different methods of evaluating the results of measurement methods such as the Inter-Observer Agreement, accuracy and reliability” (BACB, 2005). In addition, Vollmer, Sloman and St.

Peter Pipkin (2008) argue that the exclusion of these data significantly limits any interpretation of the effectiveness of a behavioural change procedure. Validity requirements in a behavioural assessment study should therefore be conditional on the inclusion of insurance data (Friman, 2009). In light of these considerations, it is not surprising that a recent review of articles in the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis (JABA) from 1995 to 2005 (Mudford, Taylor, Martin, 2009) revealed that 100% of articles reporting continuously recorded dependent variables contained IOA calculations. These data, as well as previously published reports on reliability procedures in JABA (Kelly, 1977), suggest that the inclusion of IOA is in fact a trademark – if not a standard – of behavioural evaluation. Interval-By-Interval: Number of agreed intervals divided by total intervals (agreed and not agreed), multiplied by 100 precise IOA agreement. It is clear that the approach to partial agreement at regular intervals is stricter than the overall census as a measure of the agreement between two observers. However, the most conservative approach to the IOA would be to overlook any discordance as a total disagreement during these intervals and to regard any disparity as null and void. A specific agreement is such an approach. Using this ratio, only specific agreements over an interval lead to this interval being estimated at 100% (or 1.0).
