BACKGROUND INFO 	
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
This script implements a computerized version of the Brief Resilience Scale (BRS) as described by:

Smith, B. W., Dalen, J., Wiggins, K., Tooley, E., Christopher, P., & Bernard, J. (2008). 
The brief resilience scale: assessing the ability to bounce back. 
International journal of behavioral medicine, 15(3), 194-200.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
OVERVIEW
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
- self report
- 6 5-point Likert questions

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________	
DURATION 
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________	
the default set-up of the script takes less than a minute to complete

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

(1) Raw data file: 'briefresiliencescale.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 (strongly disagree) - 5 (strongly agree)
									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: 'briefresiliencescale_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)

BRSscore:						the average score (sum of all responses/6)
								Range: 1-5 => the higher the score, the higher the self-reported resilience
