Cafeteria in the survey

When we decide to create a questionnaire containing closed or semi-open questions, we should know what does the cafeteria term means. Simply put, it is just a list of possible answers that the respondent can give to the question.

You can choose the type of cafeteria to suit your individual needs. Due to the possibility of selecting only one or more answers, we divide them into disjunctive (single-choice questions) and conjunctive, where it is possible to select several options.

The most frequently chosen types of cafeterias (especially in social research) include the Likert scale – the method of measuring the respondent’s attitude based on the question about the degree of acceptance of some phenomenon or view (I do not agree / I disagree, I do not like / Definitely not like/ definitely yes etc.).
