Likert Scales

By presenting a balanced scale of answer choices on both sides of a neutral option, a Likert scale allows you to uncover degrees of opinion on a particular topic.

There are several pre-written Likert scale questions available in the Question Bank. For example:

How important is teamwork to your employer?

  • Extremely important
  • Very important
  • Moderately important
  • Slightly important
  • Not at all important

To create your own Likert scale, you can use a Matrix/Rating Scale question, and assign a weight to each answer choice so that a rating average is calculated in the Analyze Results section.

Or, you can use a Multiple Choice question without applying weights.
