Each replicate is defined in terms of specific rater and a specific task). 3 Early measurement models were not concerned with replicates that were multifaceted in nature (Brown, 1910; Gulliksen, 1950; Spearman, 1910). Modern perspectives on reliability also recognize that measurement facets can manifest themselves differently in any given data collection design. For example, (a) the same raters might provide ratings for each ratee, (b) a unique, nonoverlapping set of raters might provide ratings for each ratee, or (c) sets of raters that rate each ratee may vary in their degree of overlap.

To illustrate this key difference between the G-theory and CTT models, let us first consider an example in which we have observed scores based on ratings of job applicants’ responses to three interview questions designed to assess interpersonal skill. , applicants, raters, and questions are fully crossed). Thus, we have nine scores for each applicant—one for each of our nine “replicates,” which in this case are defined by unique question-rater combinations. Under CTT and G-theory, we might conceive of an applicant’s true score as the expected value of his/her observed score across the population of replicates—in this case it is the population of raters and questions.
