Directions: This worksheet may be used by an individual or a group to prioritize three or more items. It helps identify preferences, from the kinds of pie people like to the stories that will be featured on Page 1 of the newspaper or possible yearbook themes. As a general rule, there will be three clusters at the end of the process: 20% will clearly be at the top, 60% will be spread across the middle, and 20% will clearly be at the bottom. For individuals: Clearly letter each item. Then compare the two items in

each set, circling the preferred item. Working from the left beginning with A, compare A to every other item in the group (A to B, A to C, etc.). Then compare B to every other letter, and so on. If you have less than 16 items, you won’t be using the whole worksheet. When you are done, count how many times you have circled each letter on the worksheet. Write the answer in the box next to that letter. For groups: Take the totals for each number from the individual score sheets and add them together. Compare the group totals for each number to determine the group’s priorities.
