The buttonvalues attribute specifies the values to record in the data file when the subject selects a give likert point.
|point||An integer specifying a point on the Likert scale.|
|value||Specifies the value (in quotes) to record in the data file if the subject selects the corresponding point.|
This command is useful for recording likert responses as something other than a likert number, such as a word or a negative number. By default, the button's number is recorded to the data file.
The following shows a five point Likert scale that records letters rather than numbers to the data file:
/ anchors=[1="excellent"; 2="good"; 3="satisfactory"; 4="bad"; 5="aweful"]
/ buttonvalues=[1="a"; 2="b"; 3="c"; 4="d"; 5="e"]
