Ordered categories (ranking) with no information about distance between each category, i.e., rank ordering of several measurements of an output parameter

Data that have a specific order. One observation is ranked against another or in a system of classes (e.g. asking people to rank preferences in order â€“ first, second, third and so on â€“ in a questionnaire).

a scale using numbers or symbols to rank order; its intervals are unspecified.

the number designating place in an ordered sequence

of or relating to a taxonomic order; "family and ordinal names of animals and plants"

being or denoting a numerical order in a series; "ordinal numbers"; "held an ordinal rank of seventh"

value: classified value whose scale of measurement is ordered (cf. nominal value), i.e., the order of the classes is meaningful.

An ordinal is a well-ordered set with the property that each element, a = Sa where Sa is the Section of a. Alternatively an ordinal is a set with the special property that each element is the set of all its predecessors.

The scale of measurement in which data are arranged in rank order.

Level of measurement when cases are arranged in rank positions.

Ordered numerically in a series, where values may be ranked from least to most but the distances between the ranked values are arbitrary or otherwise unknown.

A type of variable for which there is a natural ordering to the values which it can take. It does not necessarily have to be numeric. For example, the response to a question on a survey is ordinal if it can take the values "disagree strongly", "disagree", "agree", and "agree strongly".

Relating to the small or specific picture; receptive. The positive pole is responsiveness. The negative pole is passivity. (See also "Cardinal.")

Refers to ranking of scores along a continuum based on the perceptions of the person taking the test. Numbers are assigned to indicate the relative extent to which a characteristic is experienced. The differences between scores are relative, and the same score doesn't always mean exactly the same thing. The Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS) is an ordinal scale used in MS. There may be small differences between people with a score of 0.0 (normal neurological exam) and 1.0-1.5 (no disability, but some abnormal signs on exam). There may be large differences between people with a score of 2.0-5.5 (disability, but able to walk without assistance).

of or concerning and order

Numbering according to order eg. 1st; 2nd; 3rd (See Cardinal)

A level of measurement at which only relative information is available about a feature, such as a ranking. For a highway, for example, the line is coded to show a Jeep trail, a dirt road, a paved road, a state highway, or an interstate highway, in ascending rank.

The integer number that designates the order of placement of a skater within the group of skaters.
