Can a 3-point scale also be called a Likert scale?? PS
real definition of likert scale?
The correct formula is: 1.5 x (N-1) +1 where N is the score on a 7 point scale.
It depends on the specific likert scale, but generally it is the ordinal level
See the related link for more information. The Likert scale with 5 points typically has a middle neutral (neither agree or disagree) choice. In the 4-point scale, the neutral choice is removed, so that person who is uncertain is forced to lean (even if slightly) one way or the other.
The Likert type question is used to determine the respondent attitude or feeling on a particular specific item. There are numerous ways to set up the answer types on the Likert scale; see the related links.
A Likert Scale Questionnaire is one where the subjects are asked to mark how much they agree with the point of view in the item. Rensis Likert devised it first. An item in a Likert Questionnaire could be "People who commit murder should be executed." The format for a five-point Likert scale could be: # Strongly disagree # Disagree # Neither agree nor disagree # Agree # Strongly Agree The results are either analyzed separately, or the whole scale may be totalled or summed. Because of this, Likert Scales are often called "Summative Scales".
The Likert Scale
its mostly used in scaling responses in questioners and surveys
The Likert scale is a psychometric scale commonly involved in research that gives its participants questionnaires. It is the approach to scaling responses in survey results.

A likert scale is basically questions with many choices for the answer. Answers for agreement include strongly agree, agree, undecided, disagree, or strongly disagree. For frequency examples of answer choices would be very frequently, frequently, occasionally, rarely, very rarely, or never.
Types of scales are:Guttman ScaleThurston ScaleRating ScaleLikert Scale
Absolutely. SPSS doesn't care how you collect data; it just analyzes that data that you input. Likert scale data is usually treated as continuous, although this practice is not without some controversy from more conservative researchers.
The main difference is that the vertical scale for a frequency graph is in units (or numbers) whereas in a percentage graph, it is in percentages,
Guttman scale is a one way street. Meaning it only has positive values. common example are distance (cm/m/km) or weight (mg/g/kg)Likert scale is two way street. It has both positive and negative values. Commonly used are survey on perception. Hence a 5 Likert rating would give a 'rubric' ofStrongly Disagree (-2)Disagree (-1)Neutral (0)Agree (1)Strongly Agree (2)In the above example Likert possible rating is from -2 until +2
You can readily convert data from a 5-point scale to a 10-point equivalent. The process is basically to anchor the end points of the scale you want to convert to the 10-point. So 1 stays as 1, 5 becomes 10. The points in between are converted like this: 2 becomes 3.25; 3 becomes 5.5; 4 becomes 7.75. Note that this assumes the data are "equal interval" (e.g. the distance between 1 and 2 is the same as between 2 and 3 on the scale). Many researchers are leery of this assumption but the leading texts on marketing research assume equal interval data for Likert-based data. A recent study in the International Journal of Market Research reported on an experiment where three groups of respondents gave answers on either a 5-point, 7-point or 10-point scale. After this re-scaling procedure, the three scales gave almost identical results. The study reference is: Dawes, John "Do Data Characteristics Change according to the Number of Scale Points Used ? An experiment using 5-point, 7-point and 10-point scales". International Journal of Market Research, Vol 50, 1, 2008.

Take your grades and convert them to numbers, add them up, and then divide by the number of grades.
That depends upon whom you ask, as there is some degree of controversy around Likert scales. Many people, myself included, would consider it interval data, and it is usually interpreted that way. However, there is another school of thought that says that Likert data is ordinal at best. Both sides of the debate have valid points, and this question hasn't been settled.
