The recorddata attribute specifies whether data should be recorded for the given trial or block.

Member of

<block> <survey> <trial>


/ recorddata = boolean


boolean A boolean value of true or false.


This parameter can be used to filter unwanted lines of data that will not be analyzed. For example, if a script includes trials intended to provide practice, performance feedback, or instructions, this parameter can be set to 'false' to prevent lines of data from these trials from being recorded. This results in cleaner, more compact data files. By default, data is recorded for all trials in an experiment.


The following trial does not record any data:

<trial instructions>
/ stimulusframes = [1=instructiontext]
/ validresponse = (anyresponse)
/ recorddata = false
