This script implements a template for a Demographic Survey in the US.
DATA FILE INFORMATION:
The default data stored in the data files are:
(1) Raw data file: 'Demographics.iqdat' (a separate file for each participant)
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: 'Demographics_summary*.iqdat' (a separate file for each participant)
date, time, subject: date and time script was run with the current subjectnumber
script.elapsedtime: time it took to run script (in ms)
/completed: 0 = script was not completed (script prematurely aborted); 1 = script was completed (all conditions run)
The template provides questions for:
- marital status
- household members
- household income
All individual questions can be edited under section "QUESTIONS"
All surveypage elements can be edited under section "SURVEYPAGES"
The survey can be edited under section "SURVEY"
check below for (relatively) easily editable parameters, stimuli, instructions etc.
Keep in mind that you can use this script as a template and therefore always "mess" with the entire code to further customize your experiment.
The parameters you can change are:
/pageinstructions: the instructions that appear at the top of each surveypage
/quitinstructions: the instructions to quit the questionnaire
Note: the quitcommand can be changed under DEFAULTS
