More Likert Scales from the Research Experts

I just filled out a survey in which I was asked to evaluate the dean. It asked me to rate on a scale of "strongly agree" to "strongly disgree" whether the dean places an appropriate emphasis on instruction, an appropriate emphasis on research and scholarly activity, and an appropriate emphasis on service and outreach. Once again, if I strongly disagree, is the emphasis too much or too little?

I'm thinking that there's a bit too much partial credit being given out in research methodology classes.
