Scale Grammar

The scale grammar has language indicator, and for each language the name of the scale and the options for a list control, maximum and minimum definitions.

Example below defines a ‘Yes/No/May be” scale for English and French language.



{ "scale_name": "Yes/No/Maybe",
"options": { "0": "No","50":"May be", "100": "Yes" }


{  "scale_name":"Oui/Non/Peut être",
"options": { "0": "Non","50":"Peut être", "100": "Oui" }


"maximum": "100",
"minimum": "0"

In the above example, the user is presented with a “Select List” with options “Yes”, “No”, and “May be” for a question. Based on the user selection, the weightage is assigned. If the user selects “May be”, a weightage of 50% is assigned.
