    How to Calculate Cohen's Kappa: Please Help!




    Hi,

    I am in need of help in trying to calculate cohen's kappa. I know how to calculate it once I have the data entered but the problem is I am not sure how to enter the data into spss.

    I have two raters, 8 studies and 5 categories of data. Meaning two raters either agreed or disagreed about 5 categories of information within 8 studies. But I am not sure how to enter this data into SPSS correctly. I do not use SPSS alot so I often have the most trouble trying to figure out how to enter the data properly but once its in I can run the correct tests.

    If anyone could help with this I would be so grateful. Thank you kindly.
