This script implements a computerized version of the Dissociative Experiences Scales (DES)

Bernstein EM, Putnam FW (1986). "Development, reliability, and validity of a dissociation scale". J.
Nerv. Ment. Dis. 174 (12): 727–35.

Frischholz, E.J. et al The dissociative experiences scale: further replication and validation.
Dissociation, Vol. III, September 1990.

28 slider response questions (range: 0-100), self-report

The default data stored in the data files are:

(1) Raw data file: 'DES.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: 'DES_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)
/DESscore:						mean score of all 28 items (Range: 0 - 100)
/numberOfEndorsedItems:			number of questions with a response > 0

28 slider response questions (range: 0-100), self-report

see section SURVEYPAGES. Editable Instructions are provided as /captions for each surveypage.

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.
