Likert scale quiz – overview

“Likert what?” – We’ve all probably seen Likert scales in action – even if you’ve never heard the name.

Each Likert scale quiz asks you to select a response from a range of responses. (Here’s a handy overview of the history of the Likert scale). Giving a range of options from ‘Strongly disagree’ to ‘strongly agree’ is a classic example of a Likert scale.

    1. Strong disagree
    2. Disagree

    4. Agree
    5. Strongly Agree
  3. (Strongly dislike to strongly like is another common scale)
  4. Assign each answer to a particular result type.

Advanced scoring – Likert scale test

You will next need to play around with how much association you want to assign each answer with your Likert scale test. Our slider represents a scale from 0 to 20. To make it easier for the non-clinical user, we just named them from no association to weak, medium and strong association.

But if you want to get very precise with your quiz, here are the scores for each range;
0: No association
1-7: Weak association
8-14: Medium association
15-20: Strong association

Each ‘tick’ as you move the slider increases the points assigned for that response. At the end of the personality quiz, our system counts up the points for each result type – then assigns the user the particular result with the most points.
