We refer to portability as the use of the measure by different investigators; that is, the generalizability of the measure across investigators. With most paper-and-pencil measures, we assume that once the measure has been shown to be reliable and valid for an assessment purpose, the questionnaire can be used widely by most investigators, in most settings, and for most purposes that reasonably approximate the original context. However, this assumption of portability is more tenuous with observational coding systems.
This approach is understandable given the centrality of change in this intellectual pursuit and the awareness that developmental change is not always linear in nature (cf. Dumas, Lemay, & Dauwalder, 2001; Granic & Hollenstein, 2003; Lewis, Lamey, & Douglas, 1999). Granic and Hollenstein (2003) reviewed many DS strategies and provide a primer on DS concepts that initially sound quite foreign to the uninitiated. It is only possible here to outline some of the more immediate analytic possibilities that DS thinking holds for behavioral observation data collection.
Commonly, investigators monitor coder agreement on 20% to 25% of sessions evaluated by trained coders. For the purpose of monitoring coders, observer agreement should be assessed for whatever unit of behavior the coders record. For example, if the coders record content codes for specific events, then agreement should be assessed for the specific content codes. If the coders make ratings at fixed time intervals, agreement should be assessed for the individual ratings made at each time interval. In both cases, each categorical code and each rating is considered an observation, and agreement is assessed to determine the number of observations for which the two coders agree and the number for which they disagree.
