SimplyAgree is an R package, and jamovi module, created to make agreement and reliability analyses easier for the average researcher. The functions within this package include simple tests of agreement (agree_test), agreement analysis for nested (agree_nest) and replicate data (agree_reps), and provide robust analyses of reliability (reli_stats). In addition, this package contains a set of functions to help when planning studies looking to assess measurement agreement (blandPowerCurve).
