The basic idea is to give respondents an anchor point, and then ask them to answer questions relative to that anchor point. Magnitude scaling is a method of obtaining ratio-scaled data from informants. Now say: "ok, if felony is 100 points, how much is "murder"? Rank ordering is a method that works well with a small number of objects, such as 10. No "don't know" option is presented to the respondent, but is recorded if the respondent volunteers it. A "don't know" option is included among the possible responses. First the respondent is asked if they have an opinion. For example, suppose you are interested in the severity of crimes. For example, take "felony" and tell the respondent that the severity of a felony is 100 units. "The Russian leaders are basically trying to get along with America." Do you agree, disagree or have no opinion on that? However, the alternative can be even worse: respondents who have no or neutral opinion being forced to choose negative or positive and doing it randomly. This can be problem with some respondents who refuse to express an opinion and give the middle category for all questions.Support for the preparation of this manuscript and for many of the studies reported herein was provided by the Office of Naval Research, Contracts N00014-69-A-0200-9001, NR 151-315 and N00014-76-C-0164, NR 170-812.A number of individuals have been involved in the development of the OCQ and in subsequent studies using the instrument for which data were made available.

Development of a valid and reliable questionnaire is a must to reduce measurement error.

In general, it is suggested that you use an odd number of steps in order to allow the respondent to express a middling or neutral strength of opinion.

Here's the statement: The result of a rating question is an ordinal-level variable (which is often treated as interval in data analysis).

It’s important to test your survey questionnaire before using it to collect data.

Pretesting and piloting can help you identify questions that don’t make sense to participants, or problems with the questionnaire that might lead to biased answers.
