Nominal scale
Ordinal scale
Interval scale
Ratio measurement
The above are the levels of measurement.
Check out what each level is, then determine which one fits your three questions.
I hope that this helps out.
Identify the level of measurement for the following? 1)What state/country were you born?
The Nominal Scale:
The Nominal scale is a tool largely used by entities that collect and categorize data. There are many practical, everyday uses for a nominal scale in industries. the nominal scale does not assign numerical values to the numbers used.#1
The nominal scale uses numbers but the numbers have no value or relation to the other numbers. Just because data is designated as "1" does not mean that it is better than, smaller than, or comes before data that is designated as "25."
Nominal scales studies of Universities may use the nominal scale to classify girls as "1" and boys as "2."
or>#1)What state/country were you born?
Interval scale:#2
2)What is the temperature outside rigth now?
Interval is ordered, constant scale, differences make sense,but the ratios do not. example: temperature, dates
The Ordinal scale #3
3)Rank all of the courses you are currently.The class you look most forward to taking will be rank one ,next two ,and so on . what is the rank assigned to this class.
The Ordinal scale is ordered but differences between values are NOT important as polical parties on left to right spectum given labels 0,1,2 or rank of scale of 1-5 your satisfaction or restaurant ratings
