Hi Inquisit people - our lab is new to Inquisit and are bringing up our first study. It is a study that is largely Likert-style questionnaire based, with an IAT. Participants will get an instruction page, one of two stimulus instruction pages (counterbalanced) with one of 2 images displayed on the page, then a few questionnaires (using survey pages), then the IAT, then more questionnaires.
We have a pretty good handle now on the language and structure of the scripts. The issue we are wondering about is how to construct the script(s).
The questionnaires will likely be used in other experiments, and so want to be reusable.
My question is what the relative advantages are of making those reusable modules their own script files and calling them from the main script in a batch, versus using an include statement to bring the source into the main script?
I can see the batch having the advantages that those scripts can have their own default settings, etc. but does include give any advantages that we might want to consider?
