A Comparison of Ranking and Rating Methods by Multidimensional Matching.
Villaneuva, Lourdes S.; Dunn-Rankin, Peter
Ranking and rating methods of making direct judgments of pairwise similarity are compared. Three dimensional configurations of seven objects are derived under both judgment methods across two equivalent groups of 59 university students. Using Cliff's orthogonal rotation method of multidimensional matching, comparisons are made between methods (Ranking vs. Rating for Groups 1 and 2) and between groups (Group 1 vs. Group 2 for Ranking and Rating). The comparisons between methods reveal that ranking and rating have highly congruent configurations for both groups of subjects. While the comparisons between groups in both methods are highly congruent, ranking produced greater congruency for the third dimension. (Author)
