Step 2: Fill in the rows and columns.

Rows represent the questions or items that the respondents need to evaluate. Columns represent the multiple-choice answers that respondents can choose from for each row or item.

For example, we want to gather students' feedback on various aspects of a course. The question would be something like: "Please evaluate the following aspects of the course."

In the row section, we enter the aspects of the course we want feedback on, like:

  • Course Content
  • Instructor's Knowledge
  • Interaction and Participation
  • Course Materials
  • Assignment Difficulty

In the column section, we enter the range of responses we want to offer, such as:

  • Very Unsatisfied
  • Unsatisfied
  • Neutral
  • Satisfied
  • Very Satisfied
