Agreement Multiple Raters

Finally, we can obtain new simulated sets of spleen/tumor observations by repeatedly making samples from the adapted Bayess model. For each set of simulations, we count the number of spleens that assign each tumor the grades 1, 2 and 3, and the majority class for each tumor. Based on data from 1250 simulations, we assess the likelihood that a given advisor will agree with the majority for a specific tumor for each tumor spleen/couple. The simulated data allow us to estimate two marginal probabilities, qj and say that the first gives a measure of the performance of each advisor j (i.e. the probability that the advisor in the majority selected for a random sample) and the second give a measure of the difficulty with the classification of each sample i (i.e. the proportion of raters give consensus for the sample). The plot of the ranks of spleens, appreciated by the Bavarian latent model, with 95% of credible limits. Figure 2 shows the funnel diagram of the results of the agreement for all advisors, with 95% and 99% of trust envelopes added to 10,000 replications and the simulated median evaluation of agreements. 61 ratters (8.3%) 95% and 31 raters (4.2%) Apart from the 99% envelope, this indicates significant differences between advisors in the way ratings are assigned.

Note that of the advisors outside the 99% envelope, almost all are below the lower limit and not above the upper limit. Normally, we do not recommend using the funnel-shaped terrain as a means of selecting people whose differences are only random, but in this example, one point is so farther from the envelope that the rest justifies the councillor justifying further examinations: Rater 156, which evaluated 31 samples and whose approval value is only 0.41. Table 4 shows that this particular advisor has a clear tendency to underestimate the ratings relative to the consensus value (the modal score observed among all advisors). variable n `u2`(`u2`v2-1) and z` is an N variable (0.1). In the total expression in (3) for category c – 1, the second term in brackets is set at 0 and the first, in parentheses, at 1 for category c-C.
