Abstract:
Three judges were trained to evaluate the frequency, intensity, and duration of aggressive responses in rats. Intrajudge and interjudge reliability ranged from .84 to .99. Correlation coefficients between frequency, intensity, and duration of aggressive responses ranged from .89 to .99. All three measures were found to be highly reliable methods of measuring aggression.
