Customer Question

I have a psychology research stats question for a study.
During an intensive 5-day group therapy camp, where counselors are 1:1 paired with a camper, we collected data on the camper's ability to verbally respond to questions during group morning meeting and closing meeting. There were 25 campers and 25 counselors. If the camper was unable to respond, the counselor applied the treatment protocol to obtain a verbal response.
- Each counselor live-coded their camper during morning meeting and closing meeting for responses to three pre-identified questions each day. Responses were tallied as a noise or verbal response. Frequency of prompts used to obtain a verbal response were also tallied, and whether or not the counselor had to do a side bar to practice was tallied, too.
- We also video recorded the questions and responses so we can go back and code from the video.
- Since each camper was coded by their counselor, and counselors rotate mid week, that means we have one rater who coded the same child on Monday and Tuesday, and then a different rater per child on Wed, Thurs, and Fri.
- Originally, I was thinking we can compare live coding vs video coding and obtain an inter-rater reliability coefficient, but since there were multiple live raters for multiple children can I do that?
- I can have 2-3 video raters - should I just do that? Use video raters only and obtain an inter-rater reliability coefficient just among those raters? Is there anything I can do with the live coding?
