I'm totally newbie in psychometrics but starting from a research paper with full data I would like to understand:
- how to calculate if the sample size is representative;
- how to calculate reliability and validity of two questionnaires (1 composed by 12 items with Likert scales distributed in 5 dimensions and 1 with 6 Likert items on 3 dimensions). Each questionnaire has been administered just once during the data gathering phase.
Could you please suggest me some Internet resources (and/or good books) to learn how to do that?
I would prefer to use R for data analysis.
