What is the difference between 5-point and 7-point scales? Can I switch the original scale to another?

There has been a long debate over which scale is better. Some people said a higher point Likert scale makes it more time consuming but others suggest that the reliability of scales is optimized with seven response categories. However, I think you should use the scaling that the authors used in the original measure report.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?

I have designed a large-scale survey about the life satisfaction of low-income families in Hong Kong. Is it appropriate to use the electronic survey through mobile phones?
