Step 1. Go to canvas
Click Item Bank or Assessment in the main menu. Select a folder in the index to open it and click the plus icon on the top right of the page or click the name of an existing item/assessment name to edit it. The toolbar and canvas opens on a new page.
Step 2. Drag component
Click and drag the Ranking icon from the toolbar onto the canvas. If you're on the Assessment canvas, click the Components tab in the toolbar first to access the Ranking icon.
Step 3. Add title
This step is optional. Click the title text to open an overlay. Enter the title of the question and set the style for the text (see the How do I add text in Touchstone to learn more). Then click Save.
Step 4. Set up elements
Click the text of a ranking element to open an overlay and enter the text. Set the style of the text and then click Save. Click the plus icon to add more ranking elements and click the remove icon to delete them. Click and drag the grips on the ranking elements in the list to set the order they'll appear in to test takers (this is not the correct order, you'll set that in Step 5).
Step 5. Set properties
Click the Ranking component on the canvas and then click the pencil icon that appears beside it to open an overlay. Select Yes or No in the Show Title drop-down.
Step 6. Enter correct answer
Click and drag the grips to sort the ranking elements into the correct order and then click Save to close the overlay.
Step 7. Resize and position
Click and drag the corner of the component to resize the width. Click and drag the component to re position it on the canvas.
Step 8. Preview and save
Click the Preview button to see how it will appear when a user is taking your assessment and then click Save once you're happy with your Ranking component.
