A Priority Ranking slide allows participants to respond multiple times to a question. It weighs participants' choices and then ranks them accordingly. Priority Ranking slides allow participants to respond to a question or poll more than once, which will determine what is most important to the participant.
The participant will enter their first choice as their first response, their second choice second, etc. Specify the number of responses (maximum of 10) allowed per participant. The responses are then weighted with points assigned to each response. By default the first choice is worth ten points, the second choice is worth nine, etc. The response weights can be changed through the TurningPoint settings. The Priority Ranking slide displays the weighted scores assigned to the answers based on participant responses.
Create a slide with five possible answers. Allow three responses (choices) per participant where first the choice is worth ten points, the second nine, and the third eight. Six participants provide responses. The first three participants select 5, 4, 3 as answers in that order. The second three participants select 1, 2, 3 as answers in that order. TurningPoint calculates the results as depicted in the table below.
This table shows that despite participants selecting answer 1 and 5 as their first choice 3 times each, all six participants selected answer 3. This gives answer 3 a higher priority for the group as a whole.
