About Ranking Questions
Ranking questions allow respondents to rank a set of items against each other.
Add Ranking Questions
- Go to your survey, click the add survey element icon (), and choose question.
- Select ranking and click next.
- Type in your question and change the typography (bold, italic, and underline).
Use the merge field dropdown menu to insert your respondents' background information or their answers to previous questions.
- Add the response options. You can copy, move, sort, and delete them using the actions menu.
Press the ↵ enter key to add a new response option, instead of clicking the add response options button.
If you have the response options in an external document such as Word, you can copy/paste the response options and add them in bulk.
- When you are satisfied with your question, click next.
- Now you can set up the question settings:
- Require answer: This setting is enabled by default. Disable it if you don’t want your question to be mandatory.
- Rank all: This is the default setting that allows your respondents to rank all response options. If you wish to change this, click on the dropdown menu and select a constraint (range or exact) of response options you want your respondents to rank.
- Randomize response options: Enable this setting to ensure the order of response options is not the same for all respondents.
- When you have finalized your question and customized the settings, click add.
Ranking Questions in Response Data Downloads
You can download your survey responses from Enalyzer for several purposes. You can use the file for analysis in other software, share it with your team, or import it to another Enalyzer survey.
In the response data download, Ranking questions are split up. You'll find a column for each priority. Each column has a header in the format “Question Number _ Priority Number” to clarify the question and priority the column is referring to. For example in the table below "1_1".
By default, in each respondent's row, each response option in the question will be displayed with the respective label number, i.e. the selected response. For example, the number 5 in column "1_1" means that the respondent ranked response option #5 as their first priority.
