Q: What should be the description of the table heading for a scale from 1 to 5?
It seems you are working with a Likert scale, which is typically a five- or seven-point scale measuring levels of agreement over a statement provided in a questionnaire or survey. Responses range from a lower level of agreement to a higher level, with ‘1’ typically being ‘Strongly disagree’ and ‘5’ being ‘Strongly agree.’ Sometimes, though, the order may be reversed.
However, as you have not provided more information about the table or what you are studying, it would not be possible to suggest headers for the table. All the same, this would be a two-column table, with the ratings (1-5) in the left column and the description of the ratings (‘Strongly disagree’ to ‘Strongly agree’) in the right column.

- Should I write the definition and working of an instrument or scale that I used in my study?
- Do I need to take permission to use a scale that was published in a paper?
