This entry introduces the reader to the basics of G theory, starting with the advantages of G theory, followed by key concepts and terms and some illustrative examples representing different G-theory analysis designs.


There are a few approaches to the investigation of test reliability, that is, the consistency of measurement obtained in testing. For ...
