This script implements the Five Factor Model Rating Form (FFMRF) as described in:
Mullins-Sweatt, S.N, Jamerson, J.E., Samuel, D.B., Olson. D.R., & Thomas A. Widiger, T.A. (2006).
Psychometric Properties of an Abbreviated Instrument of the Five-Factor Model. Assessment, 13, 119-137.
This script is based on a paper and pencil scoring form genereously shared by Dr. Samuel.
Millisecond Software thanks Dr. Samuel for his assistance with writing this script!
The FFMRF contains 6 5-choice Likert questions for each of the 5 personality factors:
neuroticism (N), extraversion (E), openness (O), agreeableness (A), conscientiousness (C).
The 30 questions are spread over 5 surveypages (one page per factor).
DATA FILE INFORMATION:
The default data stored in the data files are:
(1) Raw data file: 'FFMRF.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 the participant spent on the surveypage with this particular question
(the last time this particular surveypage was visited)
(2) Summary data file: 'FiveFactorModel_summary*.iqdat' (a separate file for each 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)
/Conscientiousness: the scores for the 5 factors
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.
The parameters you can change are:
/completeinstructions: the complete instructions that appear at the top of the first surveypage
/repeatinstructions: the instructions that appear on each subsequent page
/responselegend: the response legend
