How to Use Rank & Reason

Rank & Reason is a tool you might encounter on its own or within Projects and Activities. There are four steps to completing a Rank & Reason: rank, reason, compare, and revise. 


When you open a Rank & Reason, first read the discussion question. Then rank the items below by dragging and dropping. 

Click on the camera icon to view the image for each item:


After ranking the items, click on the comment bubble to type your reasoning for your ranking order. If you can, include evidence that supports your reasoning.


Next, compare your ranking with other students. Click on their comment bubble to read their reason for each ranking.


After reading the comments of others, you may want to revise your ranking. This is okay!
