Historically, weak values have been associated with weak measurements performed on quantum systems. Over the past two decades, a series of works have shown that weak values can be determined via measurements of arbitrary strength. One such proposal by Denkmayr et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 118, 010402 (2017)], carried out in neutron interferometry experiments, yielded better outcomes for strong than for weak measurements. We extend this scheme and explain how to implement it in an optical setting as well as in a quantum computational context. Our implementation in a quantum computing system provided by IBM confirms that weak values can be measured, with varying degrees of performance, over a range of measurement strengths. However, at least for this model, strong measurements do not always perform better than weak ones.
