This article describes and considers the use of diamond ranking activities as visual cues to elicit ideas, prompt reflection and promote discussion amongst pupils (aged 10-13), teachers and other staff in two qualitative research studies. The activities included nine photographs as visual cues, and participants cut out these pictures and stuck them onto a piece of A3 paper in a diamond shape, ranking them by position where their preferred picture is at the top and the most disliked at the bottom. Importantly, participants also annotated their diamond with qualitative comments and explanations. This article explores the use of diamond ranking as visual cues – a tool within qualitative research that is under-developed - as a way of engaging participants in the research process. Issues explored include inclusivity, active discussions and applicability to a wide range of people.
