  2. Calculate the mean of the set of items from the scale
  3. Subtract 1 from the mean
  4. Multiply the result by 25

The equation looks like this:
Teamwork Climate Scale Score for a Respondent = (((Mean of the teamwork items)-1)*25)

In order to calculate the percent of resondents who are positive (i.e., percent agreement), you would look at the percent of respondents who got a scale score of 75 or higher.
