  • A rating measure used widely in survey questionnaires to assess respondents' attitudes, preferences, and subjective responses to statements. Developed by Rensis Likert, a set of items presents users with statements and standardized response categories on a continuum, such as strongly agree, agree, neither agree nor disagree, disagree, and strongly disagree. Likert items are usually presented along a horizontal line on which the subject circles or checks his or her response. The Likert scale is a composite measure constructed from the sum of responses to several Likert items.
