Hello,

I am new to Inquisit and am having some difficulty with the script. I have a total of 9 scenarios, each accompanied by their own individual Likert scale. I cannot figure out how to write the proper script, or find one similar that I can tweak. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Mandy

A <likert> is a special type of <trial> element. Thus, setting this up is no different than any other script -- you should be able to do so after completing the various tutorials included in the documentation. If you still hit any road blocks after doing so, please be as specific as possible about what exactly you have trouble with. It is unfortunately almost impossible to give helpful and sensible answers to overly broad questions.

To ease implementation, here are two very basic examples:

#1:Likert-only

<block myblock>
/ trials = [1-3 = mylikert]
</block>

<likert mylikert>
/ stimulustimes = [0=myscenario; 5000=myquestion]
/ position = (50%, 80%)
/ anchorwidth = (5%)
</likert>

<text myscenario>
/ items = ("Scenario A", "Scenario B", "Scenario C")
/ position = (50%, 20%)
/ select = noreplace
</text>

<text myquestion>
/ items = ("Question A", "Question B", "Question C")
/ position = (50%, 70%)
/ select = text.myscenario.currentindex
</text>


#2: Scenario in separate trial

<block myblock>
/ trials = [1-3 = mylikert]
</block>

<likert mylikert>
/ stimulustimes = [0=myscenario; 5000=myquestion]
/ position = (50%, 80%)
/ anchorwidth = (5%)
</likert>

<text myscenario>
/ items = ("Scenario A", "Scenario B", "Scenario C")
/ position = (50%, 20%)
/ select = noreplace
</text>

<text myquestion>
/ items = ("Question A", "Question B", "Question C")
/ position = (50%, 70%)
/ select = text.myscenario.currentindex
</text>

As you can see, there isn't much to it. But please do work through the tutorials -- I don't say this to fend you off, but because doing so will get make you familiar with the elementary syntax constructs and how to use them (and potentially save you from many a headache and lots of frustration in the future).
