What is a Likert Scale?

Likert scale questions gauge the opinions and attitudes of people towards a specific scenario.

It is typically used to measure how much an individual agrees or disagrees with a given statement.

A Likert scale question provides respondents with five or seven possible answers that range from polar opposites — complete agreement to complete disagreement.

This type of rating scale is used in customer surveys to accurately assess the experiences your customers had with your brand, product, or service.
