Table 5 Percentage agreement and average deviation analogue

From: Using 4+ to grade near-normal muscle strength does not improve agreement

  1. The percentage of the most common answer and [average deviation analogue] for each case in the standard and modified MRC groups (limited and not limited to ‘correct’ answers greater than 3). Higher percentages indicate a greater agreement between raters. Higher ada values indicate greater (qualitative) variation
