This script implements the Suicidal Behaviors Questionnaire-Revised (SBQ-R).

Osman A, Bagge CL, Gutierrez PM, Konick LC, Kopper BA, Barrios FX. (2001). The Suicidal Behaviors Questionnaire-Revised (SBQ-R): 
validation with clinical and nonclinical samples. Assessment, 8(4):443-54.

The SBQ-R has 4 items, each of them addressing a different dimension of suicidality:
- lifetime suicide ideation/attempts
- frequency of suicidal ideation
- threat of suicide attempt
- likelihood of suicidal behavior in the future

The default data stored in the data files are:

(1) Raw data file: 'SBQ_R_survey.iqdat' 

date, time, group, subject:		date and time script was run with the current group/subjectnumber 
build:							the Inquisit build 

q*_response:					response given
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: 'SBQ_R.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)
/totalscore:					calculates the totalscore of the 4 questions (if all questions have been answered)
/q4:							store the assigned quantitative scores for the 4 questions
									(as the same quantitative score is assigned to slightly qualitatively different questions,
									the raw data file stores the actual chosen response)




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:

/pageinstructions:			the instructions that appear at the top of each surveypage
