EHQ's Surveys & Forms tool provides a question type called 'Ranking'. This type allows you to ask survey takers to rank specific options or statements based on their preference. There are a few things you should note:
- If the question is made mandatory, at least ONE option needs to be ranked.
- If the question is NOT mandatory, the survey taker can skip this question.
- If the participant does not rank options logically, for example they rank three out of eight questions with a 1, 3 and 6, instead of a 1,2 and 3, then EHQ automatically re-ranks the options to 1, 2 and 3 AFTER the survey was submitted to reflect their order correctly.
- In the reporting, the number that is provided to you is the average ranking. This means that if an option shows a value of 2.36, then on average, this option got ranked on 2.36th position. In other words, the lower the value, the more preferred this option is.
