interrater reliability help?

Dear all,

I'm hoping for some direction in choosing between cohen's kappa and ICC for my interrater reliability. I have 2 coders rating the presence of expressions 1 or 0 (present or not). I'm leaning towards cohen's kappa, but I don't totally understand the relevant difference between the two statistics in this situation...

Maybe someone could clarify the distinction between CK and ICC for me?

AFAIK Cohen's kappa is usually used for categorical or dichotomous items/measurements, whereas the ICC is used is used for quantitative/scalar measurements. So Cohen's kappa would make most sense to me here. I don't know a lot about this area though.
