Creating Likert questions

Create Likert (LIK) questions to measure subjective information such as personal opinions, knowledge, abilities, and attitudes. Likert questions enable you to create surveys that evaluate the intensity of respondents' feelings towards statements presented to them.

Seven measurement scales available to Likert questions include:

  • One to Five (1 to 5)
  • One to Eight (1 to 8)
  • Agreement Scale (Disagree–Agree)
  • Satisfaction Scale (Dissatisfied–Satisfied)
  • Frequency Scale (Never–Always)
  • Importance Scale (Unimportant–Important)
  • Opposition Scale (Oppose–Support)

You can only access Likert questions through the Surveys tool and the Question Library. Similar to self assessments, all question types you import into surveys will automatically omit points value and difficulty level indicators.
