Glossary - ordinal scale

Indexordinal scale

An ordinal scale is one that ranks the elements, but without there being any sense of a well-defined interval between different elements. An example of such a scale might be cohesion where we have the idea that particular forms are better than others, but no measure of how much. Operations are equality (inequality) and greater than/less than. (See measurement scales.)
