Here is one of the lists they received.
It is an ordered set of 10 unordered sets of adjectives (levels), graded from the most "positive" words to the most "negative". All the words of one level perceived by respondents as about the same on the scale of "good" - "bad." Any of them (for example, the most commonly used in the language) can be selected as a typical representative of this level.
*This idiomatic expression is actually not an adjective, but often used by native speakers for describing mediocre quality.
