Hi Dominic

Try reliability analysis that tests internal consistency and relationship of each items to total score: correlation item-total, co-variance...

hope this helps you

Hi All,

I have a question. How do we analyze a Likert scale (consisting of 7 responses) course evaluation questionnaire given to 25 teachers who attended an in-service course? Shall we treat the responses as scale variables and use parametric tests or shall we treat the responses as ordinal variables and use the nonparametric test.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.
