This script implements a computerized version of the Brief Resilience Scale (BRS) as described by:

Smith, B. W., Dalen, J., Wiggins, K., Tooley, E., Christopher, P., & Bernard, J. (2008). 
The brief resilience scale: assessing the ability to bounce back. 
International journal of behavioral medicine, 15(3), 194-200.

- self report
- 6 5-point Likert questions

The default data stored in the data files are:

(1) Raw data file: 'briefresiliencescale.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: 'briefresiliencescale_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)
/BRSscore:						the average score (sum of all responses/6)
								Range: 1-5 => the higher the score, the higher the self-reported resilience

- self report
- 6 5-point Likert questions
- Points: Range => 6-30

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.
