Abstract: Two experimental studies were conducted to determine whether the relational development effects noted in existing modality switching research are evident from an observer perspective. The first study replicated previous modality switching research by having trained coders rate the relational messages of dyads using only verbal cues (i.e., transcripts of interactions), whereas the second study followed the same process while providing trained coders with both verbal and nonverbal cues (i.e., video recordings of interactions). The results are discussed in terms of the main effect of modality switching on relational outcomes, the main effect of length of interaction on relational outcomes, and the modality switching perspectives’ predicted interaction effect for modality switching on length of interaction. Results provide further support to the modality switching perspective by signaling that trained coders detect effects that are similar to those reported in past research involving interactant’s self reported perceptions of relational messages.

Abstract: Many social science studies are based on coded in-depth semi-structured interview transcripts. But researchers rarely report or discuss coding reliability in this work. Nor is there much literature on the subject for this type of data. This paper presents a procedure for developing coding schemes for such data. It involves standardizing the units of text on which coders work and then improving the coding scheme’s discriminant capability (i.e., reducing coding errors) to an acceptable point as indicated by measures of either inter-coder reliability or inter-coder agreement. This approach is especially useful for situations where a single knowledgeable coder will code all the transcripts once the coding scheme has been established. This approach can also be used with other types of qualitative data and in other circumstances.

Abstract: The available indices of reliability assume either zero chance coding or maximum chance coding by dishonest coders. Some chance-adjusted indices, including the often-used Cohen’s κ, Scott’s π and Krippendorff’s α, also assume that coders apply quota, while the other chance-adjusted indices assume coders equate the number of categories in a coding scale with the number of marbles in a urn. Chance agreement is assumed to be a function of either distribution or category, by the chance-adjusted indices. These unrealistic assumptions about coder behavior lead to paradoxical behavior of the indices when they are applied in typical research.
This study develops a new index, ai, based on set of more realistic assumptions: 1) Chance coding often happens, and often produces chance agreements. 2) Coders do not deliberately maximize chance coding. Instead, they conduct chance coding involuntarily and often unknowingly. Consequently, chance agreement varies from study to study rather than fixed at a certain maximum. 3) The amount of chance agreements, therefore, is function of task difficulty, but not category or distribution per se.
Our analysis shows that the new index, ai, is void of any known paradoxes or abnormalities of the existing indices and is reasonably accurate when estimating chance agreements.

Abstract: Event data are one of the primary sources of data used in conflict studies; e.g., COPDAB and WEIS data, and more recently, ACLED and PKOLED. In most cases, however, little attention has been paid to issue of coder reliability (Rothman 2007, Mitchell
