I am new to this site. A greenhorn at designing surveys, got a data collection question.
I designed a question to gather what individual thinks with regards to doing X at different locations L1, L2, L3 ... etc. My options for each location L, laid out as a matrix, are as follows e.g.:
- I am morally obliged to do X
- Everyone does X, I just follow.
- I am required to do X.
- I am expected to do X.
- I feel I should do X.
- I need not do X.
- I should not do X.
- I must not do X.
- X should be done for me.
One of the responder commented "please learn how to use a Likert Scale properly". Since the survey is anonymous, I cannot seek him for more advice.
So I went on to read about Likert Scale, to see what defines a Likert Scale. Now, I can see clearly my matrix of radio buttons is not a Likert Scale. I then went on to find what other kinds of (named) scale are there in this subject, hoping to find one that may fit what I just did, but everywhere I go is another Likert Scale.
Question: Is Likert Scale the only way to collect data with a matrix of radio buttons? What other scales are there? If Likert is the only scale, how should I modify my question?
