This script implements the Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE) available at:
11 questions target five areas of cognitive functioning.
DATA FILE INFORMATION:
The default data stored in the data files are:
(1) Raw data file: 'MMSE.iqdat'
date, time, subject: date and time script was run with the current subjectnumber
build: version of Inquisit
xxxx.response: response to a particular question (here in numbers)
xxxx.latency: latency of clicking "next" the last time the page was visited
(2) Summary data file: 'MMSE_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)
trialcode: the name the currently recorded trial
xxxx.response: response to a particular question (patient name, examiner name, conciousness level)
(Note: not all trials that are run might record data)
/language_9: scores (number = max score) for the 5 sub areas
/totalscore_30: totalscore (out of 30)
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:
/skipfeedback: true = no feedback is given (default)
false = feedback is given (-> page.feedback)
