    Test-retest reliability
    Alternate forms reliability

    Can be viewed as the consistency of the scale 
  • Internal consistency 
    Split-half reliability 
    Cronbach's coefficient Alpha
    Inter-scorer reliability: correlation of scores between two or more raters who rate the same item, scale or instrument.
