Rating Scale is defined as a scale based on descriptive words or phrases that indicate performance levels. Qualities of a performance are described in order to designate a level of achievement.

 

Rating Scale refers to a written list of performance criteria associated with a particular activity or product on which an observer marks a pupil's performance on each criterion in terms of its quality using a scale that has more than two (2) choices, for example strong agree or strongly disagree. Moreover, Rating Scale is a list of personality traits or aspects of behavior on which a person is rated; a response technique that allows a respondent to give a graded response indicating the individual's rating, like the example given above. Rating scales also refer to instruments designed to assess memory from the viewpoint of an observer which is often a Mental health professional. The scale may be used with rubrics or descriptions of each level of performance
