Max-diff is a type of questioning approach in which respondents are presented with lists of items and are asked to indicate which in each list they like the most and which they like the least. It is also known as best-worst scaling.
Max-Diff experiments are questions that present respondents with a series of options and ask them which is best and which is worst. For example, a very simple max-diff experiment may consist of the following two tasks:
Q5a. Which of these companies do you like the most and which do you like the least? Like Like most least ○ Apple ○ ○ Microsoft ○ ○ IBM ○ ○ Google ○ Q5b. Which of these companies do you like the most and which do you like the least? Like Like most least ○ IBM ○ ○ Toshiba ○ ○ Dell ○ ○ Apple ○

Analysis of max-diff models
When a max-diff experiment is selected in the Blue Drop-down Menu a rank-ordered logit model with ties is automatically estimated (see the max-diff pages at surveyanalysis.org for more information about this model).
