Likert scales and chi squared

I have some students who are doing surveys that use Likert (?) scales ie
1-5 agree / disagree answers. I realize theses are really not parametric,
but can you consider the answers as part of a two way table, if you ask two
samples that you think may have a difference and apply a chi square
inference test or am I completely out to lunch ?
