    Validity Question

    Hi!

    I am a student new to SPSS and am trying to calculate the validity of a scale that I created. It is 11 items and the survey gave a definition and asked the participants to choose the option (one of eleven options) that best fit the definition. Therefore, there is a correct answer for each question.

    For simplicity, the survey was set up so that, when the data was downloaded, each question number correlated to the answer number (Q1=A1, Q2=A2, etc.) I ran the descriptives to see what the modes looked like and the modes all were the correct answer for each question.

    However, I want to make sure that there is statistical significance and was wondering how to run a validity analysis in SPSS to find this.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
