    Agreement between studies- which test is appropriate?




    I'm not using questionnaire. I need to find the agreement between previous studies on the elements of sustainability practice in campus. I'm applying the content analysis technique and extract out elements used in those previous studies.

    for example: I have 7 studies done by difference universities. Each of the 7
    studies have difference elements but at the same time, some of the elements
    in these 7 studies are the same. Thus, I've list out all the elements and
    need to narrow them down through the elements AGREED THE MOST between the 7
    studies.

    Attached is the file with table of extracted elements.
    I need to conclude the elements. Can I use agreement such as Cohen's Kappa? Or is there any other suitable method?

    Hi,
    I believe that you will need an extension called Fleiss-Kappa , as you have more than two appraisers.

    regards

    Sorry, since I'm not using questionnaire, can I use Fleiss-Kappa? I'm taking the previous study as my rater/appraiser ?
