measures the extent to which a person agrees or disagrees with the question in a survey (e.g. 1=strongly disagree, 2=disagree, 3=not sure,4=agree, and 5=strongly agree).
Scale measuring degree of agreement or disagreement with a series of affective statements
A scale in which respondents indicate their level of agreement with statements that express a favorable or unfavorable attitude toward a concept being measured.
a research technique that involves a scale on which there is a series of statements and respondents are asked to indicate the degree to which they agree or disagree with each statement; most often uses a five-point scale that includes strongly agree, agree, neither agree nor disagree, disagree, and strongly disagree. Some scales, though, are four-point scales, eliminating the mid-point to force the respondent to a choice on either side of neutral. Composite scores can be calculated by summing responses to all the statements.
A type of composite measure using standardized response categories in survey questionnaires. Typically a range of questions using response categories such as strongly agree, agree, disagree, and strongly disagree are utilized to construct a composite measure.
a question in which a respondent is asked to show his/her agreement with a statement with pre-set graduated responses, for example, "A book that some in the community dislike should be kept out of the public library." Do you strongly agree with that statement, agree, are neutral or uncertain, disagree, or strongly disagree with that statement.
A measure which asks a person to circle (check) the agreement to a statement (e.g., strongly agree, agree, undecided, disagree, strongly disagree)
a rating scale often used to assess users' subjective reactions to a system, involving the assertion of a statement about use followed by a judgement of strong to moderate agreement or disagreement
a common survey construct that asks participants to react to statements using a one-dimensional agree-disagree scale
an attitude scale that asks people to rate the intensity of their agreement with certain statements
an often-used questionnaire format
a rating scale that measures the degree of a person's agreement with a series of statements
a type of psychometric scale often used in questionnaires or trait, as intended
a type of question where respondents are asked to rate the level at which they agree or disagree with a statement
A five point response scale used in questionnaires, eg strongly agree, agree, undecided, disagree, strongly disagree.
An answer scale, usually with a range of 5 ordered categories, e.g. Strongly agree - Mildly agree - Neutral - Mildly disagree - Strongly disagree.
This refers to a widely used questionnaire format named for its developer, Rensis Likert. Respondents of questionnaires are asked to choose from several responses in a range such as 'strongly agree', 'agree', 'undecided'. 'disagree', and 'strongly disagree'. Each response receives a number rating from 0-5. The five-point Likert scale is most common.
A survey question in the form of a statement with some numbers before it (most often 1 through 5) that the person taking the survey is supposed to circle to express the degree of agreement (such as "circle 1 if you completely disagree" up to "circle 5 if you completely agree").
A scale running from 'Strongly agree' to 'strongly disagree' on which respondents rate a number of statements. These should be a combination of positive and negative statements to avoid bias.
A system of rating items on a scale from 1 to 5, in which 1 means you strongly disagree with the statement and 5 means you strongly agree with that statement. Many opinion polls and surveys use this method of gathering data.
A scale that asks respondents to indicate the extent to which they agree or disagree with a statement. Five and seven point scales are the most common; three can be used for special situations and children.
A response range for a type of survey question in which a person is asked to agree or disagree with a statement. The scale typically runs from 1 ("strongly disagree") to 5 or 7 ("strongly agree"). With a Likert scale, neither the numerical scores nor the intervals between score values have any intrinsic meaning.
A Likert scale (pronounced 'lick-urt') is a type of psychometric response scale often used in questionnaires, and is the most widely used scale in survey research. When responding to a Likert questionnaire item, respondents specify their level of agreement to a statement. The scale is named after Rensis Likert, who published a report describing its use (Likert, 1932).
