How do I create Likert scale questions?
A Likert scale question is a list of statements with response points that indicate agreement. Canvas' Multiple Dropdown question type can be used for Likert-style questions in Surveys.
Create a New Question
Create a Multiple Dropdowns Question
Within your Quiz or Survey, create a new Multiple Dropdowns question type.
Add a Table
After adding in any preliminary instructions, click the table icon  in the Rich Content Editor and choose two columns  and as many rows as you need (one per statement) to contain the entire Likert scale of items. In this example, there are three rows. Click the Insert button  when you are finished.
Add Likert Items as Statements and Answer Choice Boxes
Add Responses as Possible Answers for Each Likert Item
Each Likert item needs to have its own listing of responses as possible answers.
Select each Possible Response and add as many Answers as possible, with consistent Answer Text. You will have to input the Answer Text for each answer choice box. For example, [answer1], [answer2], [answer3], and [answer4] will all need to have each possible response added separately.
The standard five-point Likert responses include:
- Strongly disagree
- Neither agree nor disagree
- Strongly agree
Click the Preview button  if you want to verify the quiz before you publish it. When you are ready, click the Publish button .
This is what the question will look like in a quiz. Make sure each Possible Answer Text has every response added.
The selected answers will appear for students if you allow students to see their responses.
