If the classes that followed one or other teaching method were considered samples representing all similar classes, and if the students in the classes were also considered samples representing all similar students, then both Classes and Students, as random facets, would contribute to generalization variance for both relative and absolute measurement.
It is always possible to group the items and to nest them within a new, fixed, facet (items nested within objectives or within program topics, in this case). This strategy will serve to reduce the measurement error to some extent, since it will now be influenced only by the between-item variance within each level of the nesting facet and not by the nesting facet itself, since fixed facets make no independent contribution to error variance. Another strategy that can be applied in certain situations is to “fix” a facet that was originally considered random.
