Attribute Agreement Analysis In Excel
A Type I error occurs when the examiner systematically evaluates a good portion/sample as defective. „Good“ is defined by the user in the dialogue box Analysis attribute-MSA. Tip: The „percentage/CI in the evaluation agreement“ diagram can be used to compare the relative consistency of reviewers, but should not be used as an absolute measure of compliance. In the Appraise percent agreement, the agreement is reduced with the increase in the number of trials, because a match occurs only if an examiner is consistent in all attempts. Use kappa/CI: Within Appraiser Agreement Graph to determine the relevance of the Within Appraiser agreement. Other interpretation guidelines are available below. Fleiss` Kappa LC (Bass Confidence) and Fleiss` Kappa UC (Upper Confidence) Limits to use a normal kappa approach. Interpretive guidelines: kappa lower confidence limit > 0.9: very good agreement. Kappa ceiling < 0.7: the agreement of attributes is unacceptable. Evaluators A and C have a marginal agreement with the default values. Auditor B has a very good match with the standard.
Tip: The type of percent confidence interval applies to the percentage agreement and percentage efficiency confidence intervals. These are binomial proportions that exhibit an oscillation phenomenon, where the probability of coverage varies depending on the sample size and proportion. Wilson Score has an average coverage probability that corresponds to the indicated confidence interval. As the intervals are narrower and therefore more efficient, Wilson Score is recommended to be used in attribute-MSA studies because of the small sample sizes that are generally used. SigmaXL version 1 Kappa is interpreted as above: > 0.9 very good chord (green); 0.7 to < 0.9 slightly acceptable, improvement should be considered (yellow); < 0.7 unacceptable (red). Each expert versus the standard disagreement is a breakdown of each reviewer who evaluates classification errors (compared to a known reference standard). This table only applies to two-tiered binary responses (z.B 0/1, G/NG, Pass/Fail, True/False, Yes/No).
