Converting IPIP Item Responses to Scale Scores 

Here
is how to score IPIP scales: 

For
+ keyed items, the response "Very Inaccurate" is assigned a value
of 1, "Moderately Inaccurate" a value of 2, "Neither Inaccurate
nor Accurate" a 3, "Moderately Accurate" a 4, and "Very
Accurate" a value of 5. 

For  keyed items, the response "Very Inaccurate"
is assigned a value of 5, "Moderately Inaccurate"
a value of 4, "Neither Inaccurate nor Accurate" a 3, "Moderately
Accurate" a 2, and "Very Accurate" a value of 1. 

Once numbers are assigned for all of the items in the scale,
just sum all the values to obtain a total scale score. 

Easy, no? (If you are having problems, you might contact
the IPIP consultant.)
