script.elapsedtime:				time it took to run script (in ms)

EXPERIMENTAL SET-UP

The template provides questions for:
- age

- region

All individual questions can be edited under section "QUESTIONS"
All surveypage elements can be edited under section "SURVEYPAGES"

EDITABLE CODE:

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
