There is no way to look at the switch and see if it's good, you'll need to use a meter to see if the starter output is working. If you have verified that the starter circuit is ok, next test the voltage at the starter when someone tries to engage the keyswitch. If you're sure the keyswitch is ok and there is no voltage to the starter, the only other options would be either a loose connection or a faulty neutral lockout switch if it's an automatic transmission or a clutch pedal sensor if it's a stick shift.
