Experiments that record more than standard choice data can improve the understanding of choice itself. This chapter illustrates the advantage of such “enhanced” choice data with an example. It describes an experiment which, in addition to recording the final decision made by subjects, incentivizes choices that are made in the prior period of contemplation. The resulting data provide insight into how people search for information on the alternatives available to them. This in turn improves the understanding of the decision-making process and its final outcome, which stands alone as the subject of interest in standard choice experiments.

Keywords:   experimental economics, standard choice data, decision making, choice process
