I have 3 categories of responses (A, B and C)for a survey question. I want to give a score of 5 (to A), 10 (to B) and 15 (to C) respectively according to the importance that i attach to them.
What is the standard name if the procedure that I am following? what are the other ways of assigning scores to categories of responses according to their priority or importance?
What you are kind of doing is a Likert scale. You may want to take a look at this
