Ranking Question

A ranking question has multiple answers. The respondent can rank each answer in order of preference by selecting a number from the drop-down box or by dragging and dropping the answer choices, which is particularly intuitive for respondents using touch screen devices.

All answer choices will be ranked as part of this question so we advise you not to add too many in order to achieve the best results.
