SurveyEngine Teaching Licenses

SurveyEngine provides licenses for educators wishing to use the SurveyEngine platform to teach choice methods, experimental design, response elicitation and choice modelling.

The licenses are currently at no cost for courses up to 100 students and are a suitable complement to both choice and general survey methods courses. The software is regarded by academics as a great way for students to grasp fundamental concepts such as attributes, levels, alternatives and dependent variables in a single platform.

Typically, students create experiments and run data collection from exercises developed within the courses which may include:

  • Choice Experiment Design
  • Survey Design
  • Data Collection
  • Choice Modelling

Each student will be provided with an account by signing up for the duration of the course.
