# Setting up a Likert Scale survey to rate answers

Jun 24, 2013

I have a quiz that currently runs offline which I need to put online. There are 32 questions and the user currently manually inserts their answers from the quiz into another table which then adds up your score to equate to a rating against four different behaviours (the working file is attached).

As there are no right or wrong answers I had presumed this should be a survey, so I have tried putting it into four groups, each as a Likert Scale survey, however, I cannot find any way to rate or get results out of this.

Should it be a quiz?

Welcome to E-Learning Heroes, Lindsey!

If you need to rate or score the interactions, then yes, you'll want to make this graded. However, if you don't want to tell your learners that they got something "right" or "wrong" you could always remove the feedback from the quiz.

It doesn't sound like something that a learner would fail or pass, but having the scores reported might be the best option for you, if you need to keep track of the results/selections.

So, you're on the right track! It may just be better to switch to graded questions and remove the options for displaying question feedback, so learners don't think they're answering incorrectly when they submit their answers.

Good luck with the project and welcome again!

My concern with a graded question is that as far as I can see, in all the question choices there has to be a 'correct' answer. In my quiz there isn't a correct answer - are there any of the graded questions that allow you to just rate the answers from 1 to 5 and then produce a total of their scores at the end?

Hi Lindsey!

Right - there will always be some response designated as a "correct" answer. However, what you could do is provide scoring using the "By Answer" option, instead of "By Question". Then, you can assign different score values to different responses.

For example, you could use a Multiple Choice question, chose "None" for feedback and then "By Question" for scoring. You could say.. assign 1-5 points for 5 options. So the first answer would award 1 point, the second 2, and so on.

Would that work for you?

Thank you!

I have had to do a couple of 'work arounds' as I need the scores to be grouped into four categories, but I have created four quizzes with the same criteria and this gives me scores for learners to plot later.

Much appreciated

Oh, great! I like the idea of the categories, too :)

Have a great day, Lindsey and good luck with the project!

Hey Ann,

It has been a while since Lindsey posted here. If you do not hear back from her soon, you are welcome to reach out to her directly here, but no promises as I can't remember last week sometimes much less five years ago :)

Would you be able to share an idea of what you would like to create? I'm sure someone in the community will be able to pop in and help you out here.
