Visual Analog Scale

The Worst Imaginable Pain






No Pain

Instructions: Show and read the pain scale to the patient. Explain to the patient to place a mark along the line to indicate their current pain level. Wait for a verbal reply or for the patient to mark their current level of pain. Repeat the directions if the patient is having difficulty; use words other than "pain": aching, cramping, sore, uncomfortable, stiff, dull, pressure, burning, shooting. If the patient does not like it or understand it, switch to another pain rating scale. Always use the same scale for each follow-up assessment. Document the scale used as the Visual Analog Scale.

Likert Scale

You're now ready to use your Likert scale. Each respondent is asked to rate each item on some response scale. For instance, they could rate each item on a 1-to-5 response scale where:

1. = strongly disagree

2. = disagree

3. = undecided

4. = agree

5. = strongly agree

There are a variety possible response scales (1-to-7, 1-to-9, 0-to-4). All of these odd-numbered scales have a middle value is often labeled Neutral or Undecided. It is also possible to use a forced-choice response scale with an even number of responses and no middle neutral or undecided choice. In this situation, the respondent is forced to decide whether they lean more towards the agree or disagree end of the scale for each item.

Adjectival Scale

A linguistic scale is a set of words, of the same grammatical category, which can be ordered by their semantic strength or degree of informativeness (Levinson, 1983). For example, lukewarm, warm, and hot fall along a single adjectival scale since they indicate a variation in the intensity of temperature of the modified noun

In the case of adjectives, the above definition is commonly relaxed to replace the total order among the elements of the scale by a partial one, so that the elements of the scale may be partitioned into two groups (sub-scales), within each of which the order is total. The two sub-groups correspond to positive and negative degrees of the common property that the scale describes. For example, the set of adjectives {cold, lukewarm, warm, hot} are normally considered part of one scale, even though no direct ordering of semantic strength exists between cold and hot.
