Linkert scale first developed by Rensis Linkert in 1932 in measuring attitudes. This scale uses only items that are definitely good and definitely bad. tem is definitely favored, preferred, which is good, given the negative sign (-). The total score is the sum score of the response from the respondents that the results are interpreted as the position of the respondent. This scale uses ordinal measures so as to make the rankings despite not known how many times a respondent is better or worse than other respondents.

The procedure in making linkert scale is as follows:  

The collection of items that are sufficiently numerous and relevant to the matter under investigation, in the form of preferred items that are bright enough and bright enough not favored. The items are tested to a group of respondents is fairly representative of the population who want to study. Collecting response from the respondent to then be given a score, to answer that gives an indication of favor given the highest score.
The total score of each individual is the sum of the scores of each item of  individual.
