    Probably the best way to do this would be with a Matrix Field. Please see this guide http://www.jotform.com/help/158-How-to-create-a-survey-and-customize-it for more details and let us know if this will work for you?

    Alternatively, you may try with multiple Scale Rating fields:

    The scale rating seems to work better than the matrix but it certainly doesn't look as smooth. Is there a way to make the scale rating appear in a matrix form? It just looks really cluttered when I have each of them in a scale rating system.

    Unfortunately, it is not that easy to change the layout.

    It is possible to align labels to the Top, and hide them by adding "&nbsp" without quotes to the inputs.

    Example:

    I concur with Mike on this topic. Scale rating fields serve a different purpose and cannot be made to appear in a matrix table.

    We may be able to help you optimize the aesthetics of multiple rating fields with the use of custom CSS, but it will take a lot of work.

    Here's a brief example: http://www.jotformpro.com/form/23546669458974?

    If you can have the questions ready on your form, it will make us easier for us to provide you with CSS codes needed to make them prettier.
