What are the different types of rating scales?


A checkbox provides reviewers with a way to signify something special about the applicant, such as recommending them for a scholarship OR marking them as particularly excellent.


The enumeration type allows reviewers to rate the application with words. For example, reviewers could select “good,” “excellent,” or “superior” and each word would be calculated as a different numerical score. The adjudication will display as a number in the table.

Textual Enumeration

Similar to enumeration, this provides reviewers with a dropdown of options. If you would prefer to see the text when exporting the adjudication, use the textual enumeration type instead.


Our most popular rating scale, the sliding type, gives you a sliding scale for whatever range you create. For example, Musicality may be on a scale of 1-10 or 1-100, it’s up to you. For the total average of all scores, we recommend keeping all of your sliders on the same scale, unless you want one slider to hold more weight than another.

Only Notes

In addition to the general comments section, you can add a notes box to the ratings to ask for comments on a specific area.
