DURATION 
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________	
the default set-up of the script takes appr. 2 minutes to complete

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

(1) Raw data file: 'bis_revised.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: 1 (rarely never) - 4 (almost always)
									R = automatically 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: 'bis_revised_summary*.iqdat' (a separate file for each 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

BIS_totalscore:				the sum of all subscores
AttentionalFacet1:				score on Attentional Facet I (Range:5-20)
AttentionalFacet2:				score on Attentional Facet II (Range:3-12)
MotorFacet1:					score on Motor Facet I (Range:7-28)
MotorFacet2:					score on Motor Facet II (Range:4-16)
PlanningFacet1:				score on Planning Facet I (Range:6-24)
PlanningFacet2:				score on Planning Facet II (Range:5-20)

QUESTIONNAIRE SET-UP & SCORING
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
The questionnaire contains 30 questions. Each question is presented with 4 answer choices
(-> "Rarely/Never", "Occasionally", "Often", "Almost Always/Always").

Each of the questions belongs to 6 subscales (derived from 6 first order factors and 3 first order factors)

1. AttentionalFacet I: 1, 2R, 3, 4R, 5
2. AttentionalFacet2: 6, 7, 8
3. MotorFacetI: 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15
4. MotorFacetII: 16, 17, 18, 19R
5. PlanningFacetI: 20R, 21R, 22R, 23R, 24R, 25
6. PlanningFacetII: 26R, 27R, 28, 29, 30R
(R = reversed scoring, depends on wording)

Scoring: on a 4-point scale
"1" for least Impulsive choice to "4" for most Impulsive choice
=> Minimum Score: 30
=> Maximum Score: 120

EDITABLE CODE:

/presentFeedback:		true(1) - default: presents feedback at the end
						false(0): does not present feedback at the end
