Can anyone help me how i can make a question of ranking from (1 to 5) where i have a longer list of choices (e.g. 10 choices) and i need the respondent to reply only to chose five of them in a ranking matter.
The ranking question in kobo give rates equal to the number of choices. so if 10 choices there will be 10 ranking choices.
Welcome back to the community forum. I am not aware of a straightforward approach to achieving what you are looking for. I would however recommend the following workaround which will help you with your work.
Create multiple select questions that ask the respondents to select 5 items out of the 10 that they would prioritize without ranking. You can then put a constraint for count-selected being equal to 5.
(NOT TESTED) For the ranking question, you can pull the response items dynamically using the options selected in 1 above. For this you will need to do the following.
a. Create calculate questions which will pick the 5 responses using the example provided in this discussion.
b. Using the calculate questions from 2 (a) above, reference the labels based on the explanation provided in this article
Caution: This approach requires some medium to advanced working experience with form designs.
