Formulas are developed for estimating the true reliability of a measure from data collected at three points in time. The procedure can be applied to a single question, and unlike traditional test-retest reliabilities, this measure is not reduced in value when changes occur during the testing interval. A related coefficient of stability also is introduced, and a procedure is presented for examining the credibility of required assumptions.
