Generalizability theory is a modern, powerful, and broad framework used to assess the reliability, or dependability, of measurements. While there exist classic works that explain the basic concepts and mathematical foundations of the method, there is currently a lack of resources addressing computational resources for those researchers wishing to apply generalizability in practice. This tutorial illustrates the efficient application of generalizability theory in the statistical software environment R, including data formatting, computing key quantities, and tabulating and visualizing results for four different study designs. The tutorial is entirely self-contained, as it includes R code to generate the example data thus allowing the reader to reproduce all computations, tables, and plots.
