Abstract

Three experiments were conducted to compare ratings made with equally and unequally spaced response choices. Ss (ns = 32, 39, 81 for Experiments 1, 2, and 3, respectively) were male and female undergraduate students at the University of South Florida. They were asked to make different types of ratings with both equally and unequally spaced response choices. Experiment 1 involved single item ratings and Experiments 2 and 3 involved a summated (Likert) rating scale. No differences in mean ratings or test-retest reliabilities were found in the three experiments.
