dc.description.abstract The current study investigates the reliability estimates of the newly adopted writing placement test at ELI. To examine whether three raters’ judgment on learner level were consistent enough to justify the placement, statistical reliability measures such as Cronbach’s alpha, Standard Error of Measurement, and Correlation coefficients were adopted. The analysis of the consistencies among raters revealed that although generally the placement results were consistent among raters, several limitations were found. For example, frequent rater inconsistencies were found and oral report seemed to reveal high variability in their first decision and their final report. Further suggestions to improve inter-rater reliability are presented. en_US
