## Interest Rate

The percentage of the value of a balance or debt that one pays or is paid each time period. For example, if one holds a bond with a face value of \$1,000 and a 3% interest rate payable each quarter, one receives \$30 each quarter. The percentage of the interest rate remains constant (usually), but the amount one pays or is paid changes according to the amount of the balance or debt. For example, if one pays off part of the principal on a loan each month, the amount one pays in interest decreases even though the rate remains the same. See also: Time Value of Money.

We report the median coefficient of variation of 0.53% over all four raters with respect to segmented volume.
However, it is important to note that such coefficients reflect only one source of measurement error (e.g., rater, item, occasion).
The accuracy and precision of the raters were determined by linear regression between the actual severity (independent variable) and the visually estimated severity (dependent variable).
To verify the agreement between the raters, the Kappa index was used and interpreted as a direct relation from 0 to 1, where 0 is greater disagreement and 1 perfect agreement, qualitatively values greater than 0.8 were interpreted as excellent, greater than 0.7 strong, and greater than 0.6 good.

The tweets themselves provide evidence for behaviors, actions, and thoughts that can be assessed by qualified raters, to create an other-rated personality, and as such, will be a proxy for reputation.
High inter-rater reliability suggests that an individual can be tested for grip strength by multiple raters using this instrument without increasing the risk for inaccurate measurement collection or rater bias, while high test-retest reliability demonstrates that the bulb dynamometer can be used consistently for repeated measurements in measuring grip strength.
In the present study the inter rater reliability in the first assessment was not good but it improved in the retest.
All participants received a standardized set of instructions for each MRST event that was followed by a live demonstration performed by an investigator not serving as a rater. Each of 3 raters used a similar viewpoint to simultaneously score the MRST events.
