Simple procedures for estimating interrater reliability are presented using the new SPSS for Windows 5.0 program. Both the interrater reliability for averaged ratings and the intraclass correlation for a single, typical judge are derived from the repeated-measures ANOVA output in the RELIABILITY program. The relationship between these two reliability estimates and the Spearman-Brown prophecy formula is also demonstrated. A second computational technique, using RELIABILITY and the FLIP procedure to perform a matrix transposition on the data, estimates interrater reliability for averaged ratings directly and also identifies poorer judges (less consistent with a group).
