This paper presents a method of determining numerical scores for the categories of subjective scales. The scores so determined are suitable for use in methods of analysis dependent upon assumptions of normality. The exact solution necessitates an iterative procedure but an approximate solution is adequate for most practical purposes. The approximate solution is easily obtained.
