Abstract or Summary
  • The objective of this study was to determine the internal consistency rating for the Film Test for Understanding Behavior (FUB) and the three subscales within the test. An estimation formula which contrasts sums of squares generated from an analysis of variance was used to compute the internal consistency reliability coefficients for the total test score and each of the three subscale scores: Knowledge, Guidance and Sensitivity. Data for the analyses were provided from the Film Test scores of 321 students who enrolled in a beginning child development course during the 1971-1972 and 1972-1973 academic years. The students were predominantly female (95%) undergraduates (99%) and reported a major in some area of Home Economics (61%). The total test reliability was estimated at r = .77. The stringency of the internal consistency analysis as well as the general homogeneity of the sample would allow a conclusion that overall, the FUB has demonstrated an adequate degree of reliability when testing students at this level. The magnitude of this coefficient is consistent with prior reliability coefficients established for the FUB using the test-retest method. The estimated reliability coefficients for the subscales were as follows: Knowledge (r=. 33), Guidance (r=.73) and Sensitivity (r=. 27). The chronological development of reliability theory and the different methods available for estimating reliability have been reviewed, as well as the history and present status of the FUB with respect to reliability and validity.
