  13. 13. • customer’s responses to their expectations and perceptions are obtained on a 7-point Likert Scale and are compared to arrive at (P-E) gap scores. • The higher the perception minus expectation score, the higher the level of service quality to be perceived. • In an equation form, their operationalisation of service quality can be expressed as follows:
  14. 14. SQi = ∑ (Pij - Eij) Where SQi = The perceived SQ of individual i k = The no. of service attributes/items. P = Perception of individual i with respect to performance of a service firm attribute j E = SQ expectation for attribute j that is the relevant norm for individual i. k J=1
  15. 15. Likert Scale • A Likert scale is a psychometric scale commonly involved in research that employs questionnaires. • It is the most widely used approach to scaling responses in survey research. • The scale is named after its inventor, psychologist Rensis Likert.
  16. 16. Likert Scale • When responding to a Likert questionnaire item, respondents specify their level of agreement or disagreement on a symmetric agree-disagree scale for a series of statements. • Thus, the range captures the intensity of their feelings for a given item.
  17. 17. Likert Scale 7 Point Likert Scale 5 Point Likert Scale
  18. 18. Likert Scale • A “Likert scale” is actually the sum of responses to several Likert items. • These items are usually displayed with a visual aid, such as a series of radio buttons or a horizontal bar representing a simple scale. • 7-point scales are a little better than 5-points— but not by much. • The psychometric literature suggests that having more scale points is better but there is a diminishing return.
