    The correct formulation of equation 4.19 is the following:
    equation 4.19
    It should be l varying from 1 to q, and not k.
  • Page 168 (LCB and UCB calculations at the top of the page)
    The LCB and UCB should be calculated as follows:
    intraclass correlation coefficient
  • Page 171 (first line)
    Table 7.8 should be "Table 7.9."
  • Page 172 (equation 7.21)
    Equation 7.21 is revised as follows:
    intraclass correaltion coefficient model 1B
  • Page 190 (first line)
    The first sentence should read as follows: "MSE is the Mean of Squares for Errors, and is calculated by summing over all raters, subjects, ..." There is no bar over .
  • Page 197 (equation 8.28)
    Equation 8.28 is revised as follows:

    MSS replaces the second MSR in denominator.
