The difference between rating and ranking

Although similar, rating and ranking accomplish different goals. Rating questions are used to compare different options using a numeric scale. For example, asking product users how effective a vitamin C serum is in fading dark spots. Conversely, ranking questions are used to determine how strongly or weakly a respondent feels with items on a list. For example, asking respondents to rank their most and least favorite movie genre.
