A pH was assigned in all 72 observations of the pH 7 solution with a range of answers given: pH 3.5 (n¼1), pH 5.5 (n¼2), pH 6 (n¼47) and pH >6 (n¼22). Substantial intra-rater reliability was demonstrated (kappa¼0.77) with 84% exact agreement and 94% exact and adjacent agreement. There were no significant factors influencing intra-rater reliability. Overall intra-rater reliability is g…
