Hey guys
I was going through the CSSA 2017 Biology Trial paper when I stumbled on the question that provides the assessment on the reliability and accuracy of the method used to measure the size of a red blood cell. What certain criteria should I involve?
Thanks. :wavey:

Reliability good as it was repeated and results compared with other groups

Accuracy bad as we used estimates
Yeah basically that.

For reliability just:
- repeat
- ensure results are consistent
- compare with other groups

For accuracy:
- it was crap
- had to estimate no. of red blood cells that would fit in areas which didn't have them
