Determinants of Scale Response: Label versus Position
Preview not available

Abstract

Two determinants of scale response-the denotative meaning of the adjective labels used and the location of the labels in relation to scale endpoints-were investigated. On the basis of the procedures used, both label and location were found to have an impact on subject response. Estimation of a mixing parameter for the two factors permits comparison of their relative effects across different scales.
