I'm pretty sure I'm right and the teacher is refusing to change, but I want to double check. For sanities sake.
In our textbook, there is an example of a 7 point rating scale that is listed as an interval scale. But in the online test, a 4 point rating scale is listed as being ordinal. Even Quizlet and other test bank style sites list all rating scales as being ordinal scales. Why?
Am I really missing something, or is this a failure of school officials to admit they have a bad question that is being repeated in many schools?
Edit: For clarity. The four point scale is for restaurants and the seven point scale is for mood. Both, in my opinion, have to be ordinal.
Edit: And actually, I think it's the book that is wrong. The example of mood is in our textbook.
