timeout for each item in survey

Dear all,

I want to put time limits to each item in a survey (e.g., 3 seconds for each item). Items are rated on Likert scale.

I searched discussion and find "timeout" codes. Yet, timeout was suggested for blocks (as far as I read). Any idea/suggestion on how to use timeouts for each item on a survey?


Thanks!

Use <likert> elements. A <likert> element is a special kind of <trial> element and it does have a /timeout attribute you can specify according to your needs:

<likert mylikert>
...
/ timeout = 3000
</likert>

<block myblock>
/ trials = [1-10=mylikert]
...
</block>
