Just a quick follow-up to this thread for those who are interested. It is possible to have the inquisit window open up in a separate tab or browser window from Qualtrics if you needed to design a study where the participant had access to both. The default setting in Qualtrics is that the Inquisit window will take over the survey window temporarily while the participants complete the task, and you can redirect participants back to the Qualtrics survey through a link when they are finished with the task. However, there may be some cases where you'll need to let participants have access to both the survey and the task simultaneously or intermittently. For example, our lab was designing a study where we wanted to know participants' evaluations of a cognitive task while they were completing it.
To achieve this, do this through Qualtrics when you insert the link to the Inquisit Web study.
-Go to the "Rich Content Editor" to insert the link.
-When inserting the link to the study, click the "Target" tab, and choose "New Window (_blank)". This will open Inquisit in a new tab.
-Alternatively, if you wanted the task to pop up in a different browser window, you could choose "<popup window>"
Do note that if you want to do this, as Dave indicated, you will need to be sure to set Inquisit's defaults, window size in the code to something smaller than full screen. For example, I used 80%, 80% for the purposes of my experiment. When set to full screen, Inquisit will take over the screen, as usual, and participants won't have easy access to the survey until they are finished with the task.
