Synopsis: Thirty trained reviewers rated a case simulation using child status and practice performance indicators in a case review protocol having 6-point rating scales. Results were compared using modal values for indicators to determine hit/miss rates. Inter-rater reliability analyses (Interclass Correlation Coefficients, ICC) were used to assess consistency and concordance. ICC values for child status indicator ratings were .9921, 95% confidence interval: .9844 -- .9971, p < .0000. ICC values for practice indicator ratings were .8938, 95% confidence interval: .7897 -- .9613, p < .0000. Results show that trained reviewers tend to be consistent in ratings when using a case simulation for a structured case review protocol.
