What are the different types of rating scales?




There are several different types of rating scales you can choose from to adjudicate your submissions. This list will help you find what is right for you and your organization!



The enumeration type allows reviewers to rate the application with words. For example, reviewers could select “good,” “excellent,” or “superior” and each word would be calculated as a different numerical score. The adjudication will display as a number in the table.



Textual Enumeration

Similar to enumeration, this provides reviewers with a dropdown of options. If you would prefer to see the text when exporting the adjudication, use the textual enumeration type instead.



This option allows reviewers to choose Yes or No. For example, "Would you recommend this applicant for a scholarship?"


*When viewing Yes/No rating scales in the Submitted Ratings table, the results will appear as binary digits, 0 or 1. If you'd prefer to see the answer of Yes or No, we recommend using Textual Enumeration.



Our most popular rating scale, the sliding type, gives you a sliding scale for whatever range you create. For example, Musicality may be on a scale of 1-10 or 1-100, it’s up to you. For the total average of all scores, we recommend keeping all of your sliders on the same scale, unless you want one slider to hold more weight than another. Note: Sliders are only available in whole numbers (no decimals) and you can choose to allow a note to be added to the scale.



Only Notes

In addition to the general Comments section (here), you can add a Notes box to the ratings to ask for comments on a specific area.



Once you know what type of rating scales work best for your organization, you are ready to create and assign Rating Scales to your programs!
