Split-half reliability can be thought of as an example of parallel forms reliability with both tests administered at the same setting.

The Spearman-Brown formula is customarily used for this purpose. 66. 36 ASSESSMENT IN THE CLASSROOM Split-halves reliability is conceptually similar to parallel forms reliability which makes it easy to understand.

This type of explanation is okay as far as it goes, but it doesn’t work when a child is functioning below grade level. It is is illogical to say that a child can do seventh grade level math as well as a fifth grader can do seventh grade level math. Fifth graders have not been exposed to the curriculum necessary for success at this level and even the best fifth grade students should not be expected to have mastered that curriculum. Grade norms provides only an approximation of how well a student is doing, and their magnitude really has little to do with the actual performance of students in other grades with whom the comparisons are presumably being made.

The more reliable a test is, the closer it will approach 1. The reliability of any two tests can be directly compared using the reliability coefficient. There are three approaches to computing the reliability coefficient: parallel forms, test-retest, and the single administration methods.

It is so widely accepted that other methods of determining reliability are usually considered estimates of parallel forms reliability.
