Correcting for Unreliability in Test Measures

To make the reliability corrections, you construct adistribution of reliability coefficients using all available sources. This distribution has the mean of:

where rxx is the reliability for the individual study, and K is the number of reliability studies. The variance for this distribution is defined as:

The mean reliability and the variance for the dependent variable use the same formulas.
