4 Definitions Dichotomous scale; The dichotomous scale is used to elicit a yes or no answer, as in the example Below. Note that a nominal scale is used to elicit the response. Example; do you own a car? YesNo Category scale; The category scale uses multiple items to elicit a single response as per the example. This also uses the nominal scale. Example; where in northern California do you reside? North Bay, south Bay, East Bay, Peninsula, Other Likert scale; The Likert scale is designed to examine how strongly subjects agree or disagree with statement on a 5-point scale with the following anchors: Strongly disagreeDisagree Neither Agree or Nor Disagree AgreeStrongly Agree This is also an interval scale and differences in the response between any two points on the scale remain the same Click
5 Semantic Differential Scale; Several bipolar attributes are identified at extremes of the scale and respondents are asked to indicate their attitude, on what may be called a semantic scale. This is treated as interval scale. Example; Responsive Unresponsive Beautiful Ugly Numerical scale; The numerical is similar to the semantic scale, with the difference that numbers on a 5-point or 7-points scale are provided. This is also an interval scale. Example; How please are you with your new real estate agent? extremely pleased extremely displeased Itemized rating scale; A 5-point or 7-point scale with anchors, as needed, is provided for each item and the respondent states the appropriates number on the side of each item, as per the examples that follow. The response to the items are then summated. This use an interval scale. Click Example; Very unlikely unlikely Neither likely or Nor unlikely likely very likely 13254
6 Fixed or constant sum scale; the respondent are here asked to distribute a given no. Of points across various items as per the example below. This is more in the nature of Ordinal scale. Example; in choosing a toilet soap, indicate the importance you attach to each of the aspects by allotting points for each to total 100 in all. Stapel scale; this scale simultaneously measures both direction and intensity of the attitude toward the items under study. the characteristic of interest to the study is placed at the center and a numerical scale, say, from +3 to -3, on either side of the item. Since this does not has an absolute zero point, this an interval scale. Click
7 Graphic Rating Scale; a graphical representation helps the respondent to indicate on this scale their answers to a particular question by placing a mark at the appropriate point on the line as in the following example. This is an ordinal scale, though the following example might appear to make it look like an interval scale Example; on a scale of 1 to 10 how would you rate your supervisor? Excellent all right very bad Consensus scale; are also developed by consensus, where a panel of judges select certain items, which in its view measure the relevant concept. Other scales; there are also some advanced scaling methods such as multidimensional Scaling, where objects, people, or both, are visually scaled, and a conjoint analysis is performed. Click

19 Number of Dimensions Measurement scales are either uni dimensional or multidimensional With a one-dimensional scale, only one attribute of the participant or object is measured. One measure of an actor’s star power is his or her ability to “carry” a movie. It is a single dimension. By combining multiple dimensions into a single measure, an agent may place clients along a linear continuum of “star power.” A multidimensional scale recognizes that an object might be better described with several dimensions than on a one-dimensional continuum. The actor’s star power variable might be better expressed by three distinct dimensions—ticket sales for last three movies, speed of attracting financial re-sources, and column-inch/amount-of-TV coverage of the last three films Click More..
