What is an 'Order Rank' question on OpinionX?

Order Rank is drag-and-drop question format on OpinionX for ranking a list of opinion statements.

When should I use a Order Rank question?

Order Rank questions are great for simple drag-and-drop lists of up to 10 options. For 10+ opinions, we recommend using the Pair Rank method instead, which breaks the list down into head-to-head pair votes and is better suited for long lists

How are the Order Rank scores calculated?

Order Rank on OpinionX is based on a Borda Count format called "The Dowdall Method". When a participant submits their ranked list, each opinion is scored 100/rank. For example, 4th would get 100/4 = 25 points. If a participant excludes an opinion from their ranked list, the opinion gets 0 points. The overall score for each opinion is average(sum of all scores).

Can I set a minimum or maximum number of options that must be ranked by each participant?

Yes! Open the block settings in the bottom-right corner while editing your Order Rank block and enable the "Set Mix/Max Votes". Note: this feature is available to customers on our Ask tier or higher.

Can I use multiple Order Rank blocks in my survey?

All OpinionX users can have an unlimited number of Order Rank blocks in their survey, regardless of whether they're a free or paying customer. This apples to all block types on OpinionX.

How many ranking options can I include in an Order Rank question?

There is no limit to the number of Order Rank options you can include.

Do Order Rank questions work on mobile devices?

Yes. All OpinionX question-types are designed to be suitable for participants on any web browser, whether that's a desktop monitor, laptop, tablet or smartphone.

Can I use emojis or images in my Order Rank block?

You can use emojis in the question and ranking options on OpinionX. We are currently building a separate 'Image Rank' block using the same underlying functionality as the Pair Rank block, which will be available during Q2 2023.
