Anchored Max Diff / Accumulated Data File

I am working on an anchored MaxDiff using the direct binary approach, but won't be running the survey on Sawtooth.  (I will program the MaxDiff and follow up anchor task in Sawtooth, but will collect the data elsewhere).

When I do this for regular MaxDiff studies, I create an accumulated data template file and paste in the collected MaxDiff responses for upload into Sawtooth for analysis.  

Do I need to do anything differently to incorporate the anchor question?  Or do I simply add in binary fields for each of the anchor options to the uploaded data file (then refer to these fields in the analysis settings)?

Hi Debra,

When you export accumulated data template from Sawtooth, it will consist of variable for anchor questions.

You can add data in those variables and accumulate as per standard process.

Do let me know if you have any questions.
