Assessments involving multiple sources of measurement error (eg, rater stringency, task difficulty, content specificity) are commonly used in the health professions to measure clinical skills. Classical test theory does not furnish adequate tools for investigation of psychometric characteristics of such assessment methods. This workshop provides an introduction to generalizability theory, which does supply the appropriate tools to estimate the reproducibility of scores and evaluate alternate approaches to test design and use of testing resources.
