Abstract [en]

This study investigated the effect of reversal of response scales in a questionnaire. Two versions, A and B, were constructed. A was identical with B except that all response scales were reversed in B. The two versions were randomly distributed to a group of psychology students. No statistically significant differences were found concerning means and standard deviations of the response distributions when the sign test was applied to six different groups of response scales in the questionnaire. A tendency to select response categories to the left could be seen in the data. This tendency has later been confirmed by other researchers.
