BACKGROUND INFO

											*Purpose*
This script implements a computerized version of the 'Ambivalent-sexistische Einstellungen gegenüber Männern (ASEM)' questionnaire
as described in:

Collani, G. & Werner, R. (2014). Ambivalent - sexistische Einstellungen gegenüber Männern (ASEM).
In: D. Danner & A. Glöckner-Rist (Eds.), Zusammenstellung sozialwissenschaftlicher Items und Skalen. doi: 10.6102/zis215

											  *Task*
20 6-point Likert questions on 'ambivalent sexist attitudes towards men'.
Question 1-10 score on subscale "hostility", 
questions11-10 score on subscale "benevolence"		

The questions can be run with short-item phrasing (default setting) or longer item phrasings (contain more details)	

Note:
Collani & Werner (2014) provided the original questions with a scale ranging from -3 to +3 (excluding 0) but transformed the responses
to a 1-7 (excluding 4) scale for data analysis purposes. This script does not explicitly mention the original '-3 to +3'
scale to participants and simply provides the anchors for each individual question instead. The responses are coded with the
scale 1-7 (excluding 4) in the data files.						  


DATA FILE INFORMATION: 
The default data stored in the data files are:

(1) Raw data file: 'asem_german.iqdat'

date, time, group, subject:		date and time script was run with the current group/subjectnumber 
build:							the Inquisit build 

q*_response:					response given (in assigned values)
q*_latency:						how much time (in ms) the participant spent on the surveypage with this particular question (the last time this particular surveypage was visited)


(2) Summary data file: 'asem_german_summary.iqdat' (Inquisit Lab: one data file per participant)

script.startdate:				date script was run
script.starttime:				time script was started
script.subjectid:				subject id number
script.groupid:					group id number
script.elapsedtime:				time it took to run script (in ms)
computer.platform:				the platform the script was run on
/completed:						0 = script was not completed (prematurely aborted); 1 = script was completed (all conditions run)

/runShortVersion:				true (1): runs the short item phrases (default)
								false (0): runs the long item phrases
								
/hostility:						the subscale total for 'hostility' (Hostilität) Min: 10 - Max: 70 (scale: 1-7, excluding 4)
/benevolence:					the subscale total for 'benevolence' (Benevolenz) Min: 10 - Max: 70 (scale: 1-7, excluding 4)
/ASEM_total:					the sum of the subscale totals Min: 20 - Max: 140

The norms are reported based on means and standard deviations based on pooled data of male (N= 60) and female (N=310) participants
using the short item scales and the transformed scales 1-7 (excluding 4):

/z_hostility:					z-score of hostility score (using mean and standard deviation reported by Collani, G. & Werner, R. (2014)
/z_benevolence:					z-score of benevolence score (using mean and standard deviation reported by Collani, G. & Werner, R. (2014)
/z_ASEM:						z-score of ASEM total score (using mean and standard deviation reported by Collani, G. & Werner, R. (2014)

/p_hostility:					percentile score of hostility score
/p_benevolence:					percentile score of benevolence score
/p_ASEM :						percentile score of ASEM total score



QUESTIONNAIRE SET-UP

20 6-point Likert questions on 'ambivalent sexist attitudes towards men'.
Question 1-10 score on subscale "hostility",
