The purpose of this study is to analyze Dependability Scores of Children for the Development of Language Domain through Performance-Based Assessment using Generalizability Theory (GT). In this study, dependability test scores was derived using the two-facet Nested Partially Random Design
(r:pi), which is the nested rater (r), and the two facets involved are a person (p) as an object of measurement and 26 items from Language Development Domain (i). Data was collected and analyzed using the EduG software based on Theory-G where the D-study determined
the coefficient G as well as the appropriateness of the design of all the items of Language Development Domain in the test. 77 kindergarten children were assessed as participants in this study. Firstly, analysis of variance showed that nested rater variance component in person and item (r:pi)
component accounted for the highest percentage of the total variance, i.e., by σ
r:pi = 0.18730; 38.3% and the smallest, interaction variance among person and items of σpi = 0.08159; 16.7%. Secondly, analysis in D-study that the overall absolute
Coefficient G reading phi (Φ) remains at 0.92, which was an acceptable value. This study base on Theory-G had an impact on minimizing the error of measurement and determining the appropriateness use of items in the administration of the assessment.
