  1. Spearman correlation: The same construct should have correlation coefficients greater than 0.30. The interpretation of the weighted Kappa coefficient is divided as follows: < 0, no agreement; 0.01 to 0.20, none to slight; 0.21 to 0.40, fair; 0.41 to 0.60, moderate; 0.61 to 0.80, substantial; 0.81 to 1.00, almost perfect
