More Information about the Multi-Source Response Scale

 

The zero to nine scale presents ten options in three distinct groups:

The Disagree set consisting of "0 1 2"

0 = Totally Disagree – always and entirely

1 = Usually Disagree less than 50% of the time, but not always or entirely

2 = Often Disagree more then 50% of the time, but not always or entirely

The Neither Disagree or Agree set consisting of "3 4 5 6", and

3 = Leaning toward Disagree, but have some reservations

4 = Nearly Neutral but slightly Disagree

5 = Nearly Neutral but slightly Agree

6 = Learning toward Agree, but have some reservations

The Agree set consisting of "7 8 9."

7 = Often Agree less than 50% of the time, but not always or entirely

8 = Usually Agree more then 50% of the time, but not always or entirely

9 = Totally Agree – always and entirely

A "No Response" option is also available but it is suggested that his option be used sparingly. If "No Response" is used, it will be helpful if a comment is also provided that would explain this selection. For example, "Don’t know" – "Haven’t observed" – "Infrequent interaction" are all legitimate reasons for selecting "No Response" and will help considerably in understanding the rationale for using this option.
