I'm writing a personality test app and am thinking of a way to implement the UI for recording answers. The test requires the user to answer how accurately terms like "kind" or "cold" describe their personality, using the following scale:
- 1 - Extremely Inaccurate
- 2 - Very Inaccurate
- 3 - Moderately Inaccurate
- 4 - Slightly inaccurate
- 5 - Neither accurate nor inaccurate
- 6 - Slightly accurate
- 7 - Moderately accurate
- 8 - Very accurate
- 9 - Extremely accurate
I want to simplify the process of recording answers using a gauge, but there's not enough space to provide description of all answers. So I'm thinking of using a color-coded gauge with 2 poles - not accurate and accurate.
How can I use color gradation to indicate that one side of the gauge is accurate while the other is extremely inaccurate?
Is there a better way to condense the above 9 point answer scale into a color coded gauge?
