BACKGROUND INFO

											*Purpose*
This script implements the Self Report Emotional Intelligence Test (SREIT) - also referred to as the
the Schutte Emotional Intelligence Scales (SEIS)/Schutte Self Report Emotional Intelligence Test (SSEIT)-

as described in:

Schutte, N.S., Malouff, J.M., Hall, L.E., Haggerty, D.J., Cooper, J.T., Golden, C.J., & Dornheim, L. (1998).
Development and validation of a measure of emotional intelligence. Personality and Individual Differences, 25, 167-177.

Normed Data based on:
Nicola S. Schutte , John M. Malouff , Chad Bobik , Tracie D. Coston ,
Cyndy Greeson , Christina Jedlicka , Emily Rhodes & Greta Wendorf (2001). Emotional
Intelligence and Interpersonal Relations, The Journal of Social Psychology, 141:4, 523-536, DOI:
10.1080/00224540109600569

											  *Task*
Participants work on 33 likert-type questions with 5 answer choices.


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

(1) Raw data file: 'SSEIT.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)
									1 = "Strongly Disagree"
									2 = "Disagree" 
									3 = "Neither Agree nor Disagree"
									4 = "Agree"
									5 = "Strongly Agree"

									for reversed questions (5, 28, 33): the scale automatically reverses

q*_latency:							how much time the participant spent on the surveypage with this particular question
									(the last time this particular surveypage was visited)


(2) Summary data file: 'SSEIT_summary*.iqdat' (a separate file for each 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)
/popMean:						weighted mean for Emotional Intelligence across 5 experiments (Schutte et al, 2001) used as estimate for population mean = 133.36
/popSD:							weighted standard deviation for Emotional Intelligence across 5 experiments (Schutte et al, 2001) used as estimate for population standard deviation = 12.83

/totalscore:					the sum of all response scores
/z:								z-score of totalscore (uses weighted mean/weighted standard deviation based on 5 studies reported by Schutte et al, 2001, 
								as estimates for population mean and standard deviation)
/percentile:					percentile rank based on z-score


QUESTIONNAIRE SET-UP
* 33 questions with 5-point Likert scales
	1 = "Strongly Disagree"
	2 = "Disagree" 
	3 = "Neither Agree nor Disagree"
	4 = "Agree"
	5 = "Strongly Agree"

for reversed questions (5, 28, 33) the scoring is reversed.

* The individual anchors (and number of anchors) can be edited under section QUESTIONS
(the changes need to be made for each radiobutton question). Only anchor 1 and 5
are original.
* a totalscore is calculated and saved in the summary data file
* by default the questions are required to answer; to change go to section QUESTIONS

INSTRUCTIONS
Surveypage instructions can be edited under Editable Parameters -> parameters.pageinstructions

NORMED DATA (see Schutte et al, 2001)

Emotional Intelligence:			
		mean	SD		N
Exp1	126.88	12.18	24
Exp2	142.51	9.46	37
Exp3	132.84	12.37	77
Exp4	131.61	14.23	38
Exp5	131.56	15.67	43
						total N	219
		
=> weighted Mean = 133.36 => estimate for population mean for Emotional Intelligence Score
=> weighted SD = 12.83 => estimate for population standard deviation of Emotional Intelligence Scores


EDITABLE CODE:
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
/popMean:					weighted mean for Emotional Intelligence across 5 experiments (Schutte et al, 2001) used as estimate for population mean = 133.36
/popSD:						weighted standard deviation for Emotional Intelligence across 5 experiments (Schutte et al, 2001) used as estimate for population standard deviation = 12.83
