# Cohen's kappa for agreements between two inter rater metrics?

I have two metrics for measuring source code cohesion. To verify that both have some agreement can I use Cohen kappa for that? Both the metrics have values in range [0 to 1]. It's not necessary if both have the same values. If both the metrics are similar than I consider the common case and in case of conflicting as conflict. If one metric is decreasing and other is decreasing than both the metrics are common otherwise conflicting vice versa.

• This needs more detail for a proper answer. Can you edit your question to include the nature of the metrics (continuous, categorical with how many categories and ordered or not ordered), a definition of what you mean by close and by conflict? – mdewey Apr 22 at 12:34

If I understood correctly, it seems to me that you have a continuous variable: the values can be any number in the interval $$[0; 1]$$. In this case Cohen's k is not appropriate.
