BACKGROUND INFO 	
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
This script implements the Attitudes towards Chocolate Questionnaire published by:

Benton, D., Greenfield, K. & Morgan, M. (1998). The development of the attitudes to chocolate questionnaire, 
Personality and Individual Differences, 24, 513-520.
(http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0191886997002158)

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
OVERVIEW
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
24 slider questions (0-100 points each)
* 10 Guilt questions
* 10 Craving questions
* 4 Functional questions

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________	
DURATION 
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________	
the default set-up of the script takes appr. 5 minutes to complete

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________	
DATA FILE INFORMATION 
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
The default data stored in the data files are:

(1) Raw data file: 'attitudestowardschocolatequestionnaire.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 (not at all like me) - 100 (very much like me)
									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: 'attitudestowardschocolatequestionnaire_summary.iqdat' (Inquisit Lab: one data file per participant)

Computer Platform:				the platform the script was run on (win/mac/ios/android)
Date:							date script was run
Time:							time script was started
Subject ID:						assigned subject id number
Group ID:						assigned group id number
Session ID:						Session ID (if repeated measure design)
Script Duration:					time it took to run script (in ms)
Script Completion:				0 = script was not completed (prematurely aborted); 
								1 = script was completed (all conditions run)
								
dropdown.gender.response:		the response to the gender question 
								Note: if response is 'other', the data are treated as "female" in this script for percentile rank determinations

Craving:							Craving Score = mean score of all 10 craving (C) questions (0-100)
Craving_percentile:				the percentile of the Craving Score based on normative data published in Table 3, p. 516, in Benton et al (1998)
								and linear interpolation for the gender indicated (!default is female in this script!)
									Note: for Males: the upper score reported is 81.4 (100%) - in this script: anything above 81.4 receives a rank of 100%

Guilt:							Guilt Score = mean score of all 10 guilt (G) questions (0-100)
Guilt_percentile:					the percentile of the Guilt Score based on normative data published in Table 3, p. 516, in Benton et al (1998)
								and linear interpolation for the gender indicated (!default is female in this script!)
									Note: for Males: the upper score reported is 70.6 (100%) and for Females it is 79.5 (100%)- in this script: anything above these scores receives a rank of 100%
																
Functional:						Functional Score = mean score of all 4 functional (F) questions (0-100)
Functional_percentile:				the percentile of the Functional Score based on normative data published in Table 3, p. 516, in Benton et al (1998)
								and linear interpolation for the gender indicated (!default is female in this script!)
									Note: for Males: the upper score reported is 97.0 (100%) and for Females it is 99.7 (100%)- in this script: anything over these scores receives a rank of 100%

QUESTIONNAIRE SET-UP & SCORING
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
24 slider questions (0-100 points):
* 10 Guilt questions => the mean score is the Guilt Score
* 10 Craving questions => the mean score is the Craving Score
* 4 Functional questions => the mean score is the Functional Score

NORMS
normative data published in Benton et al (1998), p.516 (table 3);
based on N = 330 (Females: N=226; Males: N=104), 
with 
Craving: 
Female: Mean = 46.8 (SD = 21.8); Male: Mean = 29.5 (SD = 19.4)
Guilt: 
Female: Mean = 44.6 (SD = 21.8); Male: Mean = 21.2 (SD = 15.5)
Functional:
Female: Mean = 16.1 (SD = 7.3); Male: Mean = 15.6 (SD = 7.9)

percentiles reported in this script are based on the reported percentile categories and the process of linear interpolation
