TASK DESCRIPTION	
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
18 5-point likert scale, organized in two parts: part A (inattentive), part B (hyperactive/impulsive)

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________	
DURATION 
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________	
the default set-up of the script takes appr. 3 minutes to complete

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________	
DATA FILE INFORMATION 
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The default data stored in the data files are:

(1) Raw data file: 'asrs_18.iqdat'

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

q*_response:					response given (in assigned values)
									Scale: 0 (never) - 4 (very often)
									no reversed scored questions
									
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: 'asrs_18_summary.iqdat' (Inquisit Lab: one data file per participant)

computer.platform:				the platform the script was run on (win/mac/ios/android)
script.startdate:					date script was run
script.starttime:					time script was started
script.subjectid:					assigned subject id number
script.groupid:					assigned group id number
script.sessionid:					assigned session id number
script.elapsedtime:				time it took to run script (in ms); measured from onset to offset of script
script.completed:				0 = script was not completed (prematurely aborted); 
									1 = script was completed (all conditions run)

PartA:								(inattentive): the sum of the scores from question1-question9 (Range: 0 - 36)
									("Never"=0, "Rarely"=1, "Sometimes"=2, "Often"=3, "Very often"=4)
									Interpretation: 0-16 = unlikely to have ADHD, 17-23: likely to have ADHD, 24 and above: highly likely to have ADHAD

PartB:								(hyperactive/impulsive): the sum of the scores from question10-question18 (Range: 0 - 36)
									("Never"=0, "Rarely"=1, "Sometimes"=2, "Often"=3, "Very often"=4)
