Varieties of Consistency

In this chapter, interpretations for the various types of consistency named and implied in Table 3 will be provided. The reader is invited to once more examine the equations in Table 3, and to note how the generalizability coefficients are computed. The generalizability coefficient associated with any given variance component is the ratio of that variance component to a weighted sum of all variance components which include the term in question. Thus, G(P) in PxSxRxT assesses the degree to which a person effect (consistent ordering of persons) occurs across all levels of S, R, and T. Interaction terms appear in the denominator of G(P) because interaction effects are disturbances, albeit systematic ones, in the consistent ordering of persons.
