Klaus Krippendorff paper published in Communication Methods and Measures

Klaus Krippendorff, Ph.D., Gregory Bateson Professor of Communication, published a paper with Andrew F. Hayes of OSU: “Answering the Call for a Standard Reliability Measure for Coding Data” (Communication Methods and Measures 1,1:77-89, 2007). It makes available a macro for computing Krippendorff’s alpha, including a bootstrapping procedure for calculating confidence levels and the probability of failing to reach an acceptable level of reliability.

At the 2007 ICA Conference in San Francisco, May 24 – 28, 2007, Dr. Krippendorff presented a paper at a well-attended panel discussion on Information and Meaning, titled "A Human-centered View of Variety, Recognition, Information, and Meaning.”
