Why and How?

The Changemaker Index™ is built on the philosophy that changemaking is not static, it is a journey on which someone can grow. For this reason, the Index leverages the Likert Scale, a rating scale on which an individual indicates how much a particular statement describes them. The Likert Scale is the most widely used approach in survey research.

Since the scale does not limit the respondent to a simple yes/no answer, it allows for various degrees of agreement or disagreement, therefore lending itself better to the nuanced and ever-growing journey of changemaking.
