Relating Measurement Invariance, Cross-Level Invariance, and Multilevel Reliability

Article English OPEN
Jak, S.; Jorgensen, T.D.;

Data often have a nested, multilevel structure, for example when data are collected from children in classrooms. This kind of data complicate the evaluation of reliability and measurement invariance, because several properties can be evaluated at both the individual lev... View more
