Kappa Calculator

Reliability is an important part of any research study. The Statistics Solutions’ Kappa Calculator assesses the inter-rater reliability of two raters on a target.

In this simple-to-use calculator, you enter in the frequency of agreements and disagreements between the raters and the kappa calculator will calculate your kappa coefficient. The calculator gives references to help you qualitatively assess the level of agreement.

Sample Write-Up

Thirty-four themes were identified. All of the kappa coefficients were evaluated using the guideline outlined by Landis and Koch (1977), where the strength of the kappa coefficients =0.01-0.20 slight; 0.21-0.40 fair; 0.41-0.60 moderate; 0.61-0.80 substantial; 0.81-1.00 almost perfect, according to Landis & Koch (1977). Of the thirty-four themes, 11 had fair agreement, five had moderate agreement, four had substantial agreement, and four themes had almost perfect agreement.
