Sawtooth Software: The Survey Software of Choice


Sawtooth Software has established a software grant that allows Masters and Ph.D. students the opportunity to use Sawtooth Software products for their research. Sawtooth Software grants full access to all necessary products to the grant recipients. The grant is available to any Masters or Ph.D. student enrolled in an accredited institution.The software grants are awarded year round to allow for differing research timelines. Applicants will be notified regarding grants typically within 2-3 weeks of submitting applications. For your benefit and ours, we require you to spend time familiarizing yourself with a few things before we will award you the grant.

The software grants are for full, commercial versions of the software. There are no limitations on the number of respondents. If you receive an award and find that you need a different product please contact us and we'll see what we can do to assist you.

The software awarded is licensed solely for academic use related to obtaining your degree. Commercial use is prohibited and the subscription expires upon graduation of the award recipient or completion of the project.

As part of the grant we expect a summary write-up of your research and findings we can post on our website for the benefit of others. You can view previous and current research projects at our Academic Grant Recipients page.

Grant Recipient Profile

Silvia Angelova

Silvia, 28 years old, is studying Transport Economics at the Technische Universität Dresden. As part of her master’s thesis she is going to conduct a research in the field of transport mode choice. She will empirically analyze the decision making process for every day and long-distance trips. The main research question is how the choice of transport mode for every day and long-distance trips differs and which attributes influence the decision making process in both cases. Different trip purposes will also be taken under consideration, in order to conclude how the trip purpose influences the transport mode choice for every day and long-distance trips. In order to collect the data she is going to carry out a Choice-based Conjoint Analysis.

Demonstrate CBC Using Only Basic Math

This survey will illustrate how Choice-Based Conjoint surveys work. It involves choosing food for dinner at a baseball game. You will take a quick 9-question CBC questionnaire, and then, using simple addition arithmetic, we will analyze your results and place the results into a "what-if" market simulator to see how your results stack up against others who have completed this survey.
