A number of studies have estimated the dependability
of domain-referenced mastery tests for a fixed cutoff
score. Other studies have estimated the dependability
of judgments about the cutoff score. Each of
these two types of dependability introduces error.
Brennan and Lockwood (1980) analyzed the two kinds
of errors together but assumed that the two sources of
error were uncorrelated. This paper extends that analysis
of the total error in estimates of the difference between
the domain score and the cutoff score to allow
for covariance between the two types of error.
