    Dear Sirs, We are grateful to Sabour and Ghassemi for their interest in our recent article[1]. In our understanding, they query why we did not use intra class correlation (ICC) as a measure for precision. Our test-retest reliability (absolute agreement ICC) is derived from the maximum likelihood (LM) estimates of the one-way random effects model of the form: yij...
