Combining RSPAN & GDT

Hello, 

I'm currently struggling on how to combine two test scripts from the library to use with the Inquisit Web software. I'm wanting to combine the Reading Span Task (rSPAN) and the Game of Dice Task (GDT) into the same experiment. I tried following the instructions provided for the "<include></include> option but still seem to be struggling with getting it to work. In the past, I just ran each script separately while face to face in lab with participants. However, we're hoping to start collecting data online through the Inquisit Web option. I don't have a lot of experience with programming/coding so I'm struggling in this area. Any suggestions?

Thank you!

You don't want <include> for this purpose, you want to create a batch script that just runs the two task scripts in the desired order (or in random order if need be).

Then upload the batch script to your experiment along with the task scripts and their various assets, and set the batch script as the study's start script.
