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).
Curriculum-based measurement of oral reading fluency: The standard error of measurement.
An investigation of the reliability and standard error of measurement of words read correctly per minute using curriculum-based measurement.
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.
