    I have read and refer from books internet that a Likert-type scale is ordinal data, but some were i have heard that this type of data is interval data. i am getting confused on my mind which level of measurement exactly is it?

    It is of the ordinal scale. If you seek the average of the data you have collected, you should therefore not use the arithmetic mean but the median instead.
