Help about PCA in SPSS


New Member
Hello, I'm a student finishing masters degree and doing a thesis, and I have questions about a Principal Component Analysis I have to run in SPSS.

In the attached image, there's the data I have. Basically, I have a bunch of parameters that I scaled from 1 to 10 and I wanna discover how each parameter affects the "Evaluation" parameter, since it's an overall evaluation of all other parameters.

I'm guiding myself through this link to do this but this makes me question: according to that website, in step 2, should I transfer the "Evaluation" variable as well? Because technically that's not a parameter like the others, it's a classification of the others ones all together. Please help asap, I am stuck in this stage and need to move forward.
