It took Cronbach and his colleagues nearly 10 years to write their 1972 monograph. This rather long time period is directly related to their efforts in developing multivariate generalizability theory, which they regard as the principal novel contribution of their work. In multivariate generalizability theory, each object of measurement has multiple universe scores, each of which is associated with a condition of one or more fixed facets, and there is a random-effects variance components design associated with each fixed condition. These random-effects designs are statistically “linked” through covariance components to yield a multivariate design.
