Evaluation tool 1 – Physical ranking scales

What is this tool?

Physical ranking scales involve participants physically stand along a line representing different levels of experience / attitude etc. (any ranking type question can be asked). This gets everyone moving and raises the energy in the room, and also allows for interaction and discussion as the participants try to place themselves in relation to others around them.  It is a very energetic approach, though it can be difficult to quantify.

What can I use it for?

Physical ranking scales are particularly effective for use in with primary and secondary school students, but can also be used with interested adults or general public groups.

When should I use it?

This tool is best suited to use during an event.

What do I need?

Your participants and space in the room for them to move about!
