Sawtooth Software: The Survey Software of Choice

Creating Adaptive MaxDiff Exercises

Is it possible to create an adaptive Max-Diff exercise within SSI Web that adapts to the answers of the respective respondents?

Currently SSI Web does not have an Adaptive Max-Diff exercise type. However, adaptive MaxDiff exercises can be programmed in SSI Web using constructed lists. See the following paper for an explanation: Adaptive Maximum Difference Scaling (2006).

Additional thoughts (though no programming examples) can be found in a paper presented by Ralph Wirth & Anette Worlfrath in our 2012 conference proceedings in our technical papers library.
