Setzt die Varianzgleichheit der verschiedenen Raterurteile voraus. Im Vergleich mit der Produkt-Moment-Korrelation fehlt im Modell des ICCjust. der Steigungsparameter bzw. wird implizit gleich Eins gesetzt. Somit kann ein ICCjust. von Eins nur erreicht werden, wenn die Varianzen beider Raterurteile gleich sind. Die Mittelwerte der Raterurteile dürfen für eine perfekte Reliabilität jedoch verschieden sein. Entgegen dem ICCjust. ) auch die Mittelwertunterschiede zwischen den Beurteilern zulasten der Reliabilitätsschätzung.
Verhältnisskalenniveau: Kann ergänzend zu den obigen Bedingungen von der Existenz des Nullpunktes ausgegangen werden, so entspricht die Relation zwischen zwei Messwerten der gleichen zwischen den Merkmalsausprägungen. Ausgehend von den verschiedenen Skalenniveaus ist es möglich, eine inhaltliche Abgrenzung zwischen dem Begriff der Interrater-Übereinstimmung und dem der Interrater-Reliabilität vorzunehmen. Kommen nominalskalierte Kategoriensysteme zum Einsatz, wiegen alle Nichtübereinstimmungen der Rater gleich schwer.
17 ff. Vgl. Yousfi (2003), S. 2. Bei Axiom A2 handelt es sich nicht um ein Axiom im mathematischen Sinne. Es wird lediglich der Messfehler evi := xvi - tvi definiert. Vgl. Schiel (2004), S. 25. 22 A4 ρ(evi,evj) = 0 (Die Messfehler e der Messungen in der Beobachtungssituation i und j von derselben Person v sind unkorreliert, für i ≠ j) A5 ρ(evi,ewj) = 0 für v ≠ w und i ≠ j (Messfehler für verschiedene Personen und verschiedene Situationen sind unkorreliert) Aus der Verknüpfung von Axiom 1 und 2 sowie der Unkorreliertheit der Fehler ergibt sich, dass der Messfehler (e) den Erwartungswert Null besitzt [E(evi) = 0].
