What is the difference between a 5-point Likert scale and a 7-point Likert scale? If we are using it in the general public in the community, which one is recommendable?

A 7-point Likert scale has more choices than a 5-point Likert scale. It can measure the attitude more accurately yet looks more complicated as well. You may decide according to your real situation.

Someone told me that a pretest is a more important component of a quasi-experimental design. Could you please elaborate more for me, taking the older adult group as an example?

There are many dropout cases in my samples of older adults living in the community. I wonder can I use the pretest score to examine differences among the remaining group members?

If our team plans to conduct a longitudinal study to examine the impacts of a program for older adults, may I ask the function of its pretest?

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?
