Likert Scale

A Likert scale is a type of rating scale used in psychological research to measure attitudes towards a statement or subject. This is a fixed choice scale-respondents are only given a certain number of options to respond and cannot respond in any manner they choose. Likert scales are typically 5 or 7 responses that on a spectrum ranging from agreement to the statement to disagreement. An example would be choosing which option best represents your attitude to the following statement: 'I really enjoy taking tests.' A Likert scale for this question could be: Strongly agree, agree, neutral, disagree, and strongly disagree.
