I fielded an experiment with 2 options + 1 none. For various reasons we needed to analyze the data in MBC and it would be great to get some feedback on my process below.
To get the data into MBC, each row contains the attributes' expressions for the 1st option, than the same attributes' expressions for the 2nd option and then the DV/choice, correct?
When I specify the model the 1st set of variables (attributes of option 1) affects only choice 1 and the 2nd set only choice 2. (None=offstate)
To get the same parameter effect for a specific attribute across both options, I have to collapse the variables reflecting this attribute for option 1 and 2, correct?
From what I see in the preview it looks like this should yield the same specification as the CBC .csv format that I get when I transforming a .cho file or exporting straight from Lighthouse. Is that the case or is there any other "buttons I have to click" to get the same output?
