Abstract

Variance in observational ratings of the Interpersonal Communications Rating Scale (ICRS; Strong & Hills, 1986) attributable to individual raters and mode of presentation (i.e., videotape, audiotape, transcript, videotape plus transcript, and audiotape plus transcript) was examined. Nine raters used the ICRS to code the three Gloria and the three Richard films for which the presentation mode was systematically varied. With respect to intrarater reliability across presentation mode, the transcript-only mode was found to have lower reliability with other presentation modes. Generalizability analyses revealed that some methods of aggregating the ICRS ratings into complementarity scores were more generalizable than others. Results are discussed with respect both to using the ICRS specifically and to more general issues of observational rating reliability and validity.
