The Effect of Nonlinear Transformations on a Likert Scale.
Baggaley, Andrew R.; Hull, Alan L.
Evaluation and the Health Professions, v6 n4 p483-91 Dec 1983
Various combinations of nonlinear transformations were applied to responses to a clinical performance evaluation instrument that uses a four-point behaviorally anchored scale. The factorial structure of the 15 items constituting the evaluation form was minimally affected by the transformations, suggesting that parametric statistics can be applied to such scales.
