responseinterrupt attribute

The responseinterrupt attribute determines whether stimulus presentation on the trial is interrupted when the subject responds.

Member of

<likert> <openended> <trial>

Syntax

/ responseinterrupt = mode

Parameters

mode One of the following values:
Value Description
immediate Any remaining stimulus presentation frames are aborted when the subject responds, and the stimuli are immediately erased.
frames Any remaining frames in the trial are presented before the stimuli are erased.
trial Any remaining frames in the trial are presented before the stimuli are erased. Any media stimuli (sound or video) are played to completion before Inquisit advances to the next trial.

Remarks

If beginresponseframe is not set to a value to that allows a response during the stimulus presentation sequence, then immediate and frames are functionally equivalent. The default setting is immediate.

Examples

The following trial presents a video to completion before advancing to the next trial. The subject can respond at any point during the video:

<trial mytrial>
/ stimulusframes = [1=somevideo]
/ responseinterrupt = trial
/ validresponse = (" ")
</trial>
