The default data stored in the data files are:

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

q*_response:					response given (in assigned values)
									q1, q3-q8: 0-4
									q2: 0-4 (99= does not apply)
									q9-q10: 0-2 

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: 'audit_summary.iqdat' (Inquisit Lab: one data file per participant)

inquisit.build:					the Inquisit build/version used
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)

auditTotal:						sum of individual responses
									Note: Saunders & Monteiro (WHO- AUDIT Manual) suggest a score of 8 and greater as 
									indicators of harmful alcohol use

									If a participant chooses that option, the response gets coded as '99' in the raw data file 
									but is treated as a 0 response.
