# Total Duration Interobserver Agreement

Permanent IOA algorithms evaluate the agreement between the temporal data of two observers. These measures consist of (a) the total duration and (b) the average duration of the incident. Table 3 summarizes the strengths of the two algorithms. Consider as a permanent example of the permanent IOA the hypothetical data flow represented in Figure 3, in which two independent observers recorded the duration of a target response over four deposits. This technical report provides detailed information on the reasons for using a common computer computing program (Microsoft Excel®) to calculate different forms of interobserver agreement for continuous and discontinuous datasets. In addition, we offer a brief tutorial for using an Excel table to automatically calculate the traditional total number, partial match in intervals, exact tuning, trial test, interval interval, multiple interval, total duration and average duration of interobserver duration algorithms. We conclude with a discussion of how practitioners can integrate this tool into their clinical work. Among all event-based IOA algorithms, analysis of the match between frequency counts and event records is usual. These measures consist of (a) the global census, (b) partial agreement at regular intervals, (c) a precise agreement and (d) IOA trial test algorithms.

After a brief overview of the different event-based algorithms, Table 1 summarizes the strengths of the four event-based algorithms for behavioral reliability analysis considerations. Suppose a research team collects frequency data to respond to 15-1 m observations (see Figure 1). Test s.i.A. IOA. Savvy readers will find that IOA algorithms based on the above events are adapted to free-operator responses, responses that can occur at any time and are not anchored in events, but these measures do not explicitly take into account the experience-based reaction, which measures binary results (e.g. B presence/non-presence, yes/no, on-task/task). Thus, the experimental IOA measures the number of trials with consent divided by the total number of trials. This metric is as strict as the exact approach to the agreement.

IoA with undotted interval. The IOA algorithm with a little interval (also called “non-deposit” agreement in the research literature) is also stricter than simple interval-by-interval approaches, taking into account only intervals in which at least one observer records the lack of response. The justification for pointless IOA is similar to that of the IOA with the scored interval, except that this metric responds best for high rates (Cooper et al., 2007). In the figure 2 examples, the 5th and 6th intervals are ignored for calculation purposes, as both observers have received a response at these intervals. Thus, the IOA statistics are calculated from the remaining five intervals. Since agreement has only been reached on three of the five intervals (the second, third and fourth intervals), the approval rate is 60%. Average duration by duration: 1) Calculate the duration per deposit for each response, 2) add individual percentages of IOA, 3) divide the sum of each IOAs by total duration, 4) multiply by 100 (about the entire number) average duration per IOA deposit. If the number of calendars is high, it is important to limit data aggregation in order to identify possible variations in the permanent data of two observers.
