Abstract

"By far the most cited article in Psychometrika is Lee Cronbach’s famous study of coefficient alpha. I will address four questions: What makes the article special? Why do people cite the article more than other special articles? Was the article also influential beyond psychology? How does alpha fit in present-day psychometrics?"
