    Check out http://happinessformula.pbworks.com/w/page/16643758/FrontPage, they are working on something similar to your happiness project. Adn their formula looks almost the same!

    What do you feel is the value to using the sliding value in rTracker vs. just a 10 point scale? (thanks for the tip on rTracker – I’m using it now)

    hi Joshua,

    There is an ongoing debate in social sciences/statistics on whether Likert scale (e.g. 1-5 disagree-agree, or even 10-point scale) can represent the “continuous” nature of the construct that it is measuring, since it is in fact more like a number of ordered categories. I personally prefer sliding scale because it allows you to get more variability (e.g., with 10-point scale you can only get 7 or 8, but with sliding scale you may have a range of values like 6.9, 7.1, etc.), and that makes the curves “smoother”. Here is interesting post that discusses this issue http://karengracemartin.articlealley.com/can-likert-scale-data-ever-be-continuous-670606.html and you can find more by simply googling “continuous vs. Liker scale”.

    By the way, check out also Track and Share app.
