If you search the functions in
or just use
RSiteSearch("kappa",restrict="functions") then you will find several ways to compute kappa (assuming that it is the same kappa we're talking about). The first one I looked at (kappa2 in irr) yields a p value.

I'm not sure that this is what you are asking, though.
