Dear Dr. Commons,
Thank you so much for your reply. If I am to see how items belongs to this uni-dimensional, can I use Rasch model. In the case it has two dimensions,Do you suggest factor analysis through Rasch model or through correlational analysis (SPSS). Is there any article to validate a questionnaire through Facet or Unidimensional Rasch model You can refer me to.
I appreciate your help in advance.

Only partially validate.  Validation comes in many forms.  That the scale is unidimensional, can be validated.
