This script implements the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT) described in:

John B. Saunders. Maristela G. Monteiro. World Health Organization. AUDIT. 
The Alcohol Use Disorders. Identification Test. Guidelines for Use in Primary Care.

The Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT) is a 10-item
screening survey by the World Health Organization (WHO) to assess alcohol problems.

10 3-5 point Likert questions

The default data stored in the data files are:

(1) Raw data file: 'audit.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)
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: 'audit_summary.iqdat' (Inquisit Lab: one data file per 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)
/auditTotal:					sum of individual responses
								Note: Saunders & Monteiro (WHO- AUDIT Manual) suggest a score of 8 and greater as 
								indicators of harmful alcohol use
+ individual scores				Note: the response option "does not apply to me" to question 2 was added by Millisecond Software
								If a participant chooses that option, the response gets coded as '99' in the data file 
								but is treated as a 0 response.
10 3-5 point Likert questions
