What is Maximum Difference Scaling?

Maximum Difference Scaling, also called MaxDiff scaling, is an extremely efficient method for determining preference differences between a certain number of similar properties or things (preference measurement) and can be viewed as an extension of the simple pair comparison developed by the psychologist and physicist Gustav Theodor Fechner. In Maximum Difference Scaling, which is also often referred to as Best-Worst Scaling, the study participants are only shown a specific selection from a total of items to be assessed, whereby the respondents have to select the preferred and the least preferred element . A meaningful preference model is ultimately created from all the responses from the people surveyed. The Maximum Difference Scaling can be done quickly and easily with the help of the predefined question types of the Max-Diff-Analysis in QuestionPro . perform
