Likert Scale is a scale that determines the liking or not liking towards an objective. It collects quantitative data. In a Likert scale each statement is weighted from 1 to 5. However, the issue of whether Likert collects continuous or categorical data should be made at the construction state. This is because, the score of 1 -5 for categorical data does not carry any quantitative value. However, if Likert is collecting continuous data, then the weight carry quantitative value.
