Rank Order

What is a Rank Order question type?

Rank order scaling questions allow a certain set of items to be ranked based upon a specific attribute or characteristic.

To eliminate bias, you can randomize the order the options are displayed to the respondent.

Example: Perhaps we know that Toyota, Honda, Mazda, and Ford are most likely to be purchased. You may request that the options be ranked based upon a particular attribute. This is how the question will look: Survey Software Help Image
Place a “1” next to the brand that is most reliable, a “2” next to the brand that is next most reliable, and so on. Remember, no two cars can have the same ranking.

Can I limit the ranking options?
