standard error of measurement

stan·dard er·ror of mea·sure·ment

(SEM) (stan'dărd er'ŏr mezh'ŭr-mĕnt)
A test based on error with regard to reliability. The difference between the obtained test result and the hypothetical true result.

In order to allow ease of comparison of reliability studies which examine USI, it has been advocated that the following statistical analyses are performed: intra-class correlation coefficients (ICC), standard error of measurement (SEM), minimal detectable change score (MDC) and Bland-Altman plots (Whittaker and Stokes 2011, Whittaker et al 2007).
Instead of evaluating accuracy using procedures recommended by Cone, accuracy within the CBM-R literature typically is referred to in terms of standard error of measurement (SEM).

In addition to test-retest reliability, we established the standard error of measurement (SEM) and minimal detectable change (MDC) for the SAM in individuals with iSCI.

Since interpretations in this study are focused on differences at the group level, the standard error of the mean is more appropriate than the standard error of measurement.
Absolute reliability was determined with the standard error of measurement (SEM) and smallest real difference (SRD).
The standard error of measurement from these overall reliability estimates was 2.
