BACKGROUND INFO 	
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________	

This script implements a computerized version of the SRO scale as described in:

Brogan, D. & Kutner, N.G., 1976: Measuring sex-role orientations: A normative approach. 
Journal of Marriage and The Family 38, 31-40.

OVERVIEW
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
36 6-point Likert Scales, scored with 1-6 (the lower the score the more traditional the view of sex roles)

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________	
DURATION 
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________	
the default set-up of the script takes appr. 4 minutes to complete

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

(1) Raw data file: 'sro_scale.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 agree) - 6 (strongly disagree)
									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: 'sro_scale_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)
