Instructions for Survey Authors

SSI Web generally is used for interviewing over the Internet. But, SSI Web studies can also be used for interviewing in "CAPI" mode (Computer Aided Personal Interview), which generally refers to data collection using a laptop or a PC not connected to the internet.

Steps for conducting a CAPI survey:

  1. Create a web survey using SSI Web
  2. Within SSI Web click Field | Create CAPI Packages to create a "CAPI package," which is a single file (.CAPI extension) that contains all the information necessary to run the study.
  3. Install the "SSI Web CAPI" program on the field computers where surveys will be administered. SSI Web CAPI is free to download. Download SSI Web CAPI
    • SSI Web 7.0.24 and 7.0.26 users please download and use SSI Web CAPI version 2.2.

  6. Begin administering the survey by clicking "Start Survey" within the "SSI Web CAPI" program.

Demonstrate CBC Using Only Basic Math

This survey will illustrate how Choice-Based Conjoint surveys work. It involves choosing food for dinner at a baseball game. You will take a quick 9-question CBC questionnaire, and then, using simple addition arithmetic, we will analyze your results and place the results into a "what-if" market simulator to see how your results stack up against others who have completed this survey.
