Fleiss'es kappa is a generalization of Scott's pi statistic, a statistical measure of inter-rater reliability
Fleiss'es kappa is a generalization of Scott's pi statistic, a statistical measure of inter-rater reliability. It is also related to Cohen's kappa statistic. Whereas Scott's pi and Cohen's kappa work for only two raters, Fleiss'es kappa works for any number of raters giving categorical ratings (see nominal data), to a fixed number of items. It can be interpreted as expressing the extent to which the observed amount of agreement among raters exceeds what would be expected if all raters made their ratings completely randomly. Agreement can be thought of as follows, if a fixed number of people assign numerical ratings to a number of items then the kappa will give a measure for how consistent the ratings are. The scoring range is between 0 and 1.
