I opened the excel file in SPSS then just copied the data. Thanks! All your videos are pushing me in my research right now. Log in to Reply Some divide it by standard error.

Perhaps ‘unengaged responses’ is not the only term… Log in to Reply Yikes! You’ll just have to decide whether those represent true or unengaged responses. Log in to Reply correct. my scales are all on 5-point likert I think. you would need to do yours separately for each different size scale. Log in to Reply I just wanted to add, regarding the issue of unengaged responses: I have a lot of people with STDEV around 0, or less then .5. But this may well be because of the likelihood to hit the ceiling of scoring. Not sure how best to deal with this, because I don’t want to remove so many people (around 15%)… Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
