The purpose of this paper is to describe the process of confirming the reliability of the Survey to Predict Adolescent Athletes' Dietary Supplement Use (SPAADSU). The SPAADSU is based on the Theory of Reasoned Action, which has three major constructs: 1) attitude towards the behavior in question; 2) subjective norm; and3) behavioral intention. This paper focuses on the subjective norm scale as an example and the use of SPSS 11.0 as the statistical software to run the reliability analysis.
