Ranking activities allow participants to move options into the desired order and then submit the reordered list as one response. The responses are shown as an overall rank on a bar or column graph.
Helpful tip: Ranking activities can only be responded to through the web or the Poll Everywhere mobile app, and will only allow one response per participant. Learn more about Change answer.
The order of the response options appearing on participants’ screens will be randomized to avoid skewing the results by suggesting a default ranking.
To rank the options that are provided, participants can click an option to select it, then click the up or down arrows to rearrange the option in the ranking lineup.
After the participants have defined the ranking lineup, they can submit their responses.
Helpful tip: Once a Ranking activity collects responses, it cannot be edited to include additional options or remove options without deleting the existing or cleared responses. Learn more about Accessing cleared responses.
Responses are displayed on the live chart with options ranked in aggregate (i.e. 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc.).
Note: It uses a point system to calculate the ranking. It assigns points based on the number of options and the top response gets the most, the next response gets a little less, and so on. It totals the number of points that each response gets and that is how it determines the final rank. The final results should rank them based on their aggregate points ranking.
