I have a survey embedded in a larger experiment and need to put pre and post instructions just around the survey piece of the experiment. Is there a way to do this? Please note, the rest of the experiment is randomly ordered, so I cannot put the instructions around the other pieces of the experiment.


I would greatly appreciate any suggestions for how to do this.

Hi Roison,

If you are locked into using instruction pages for some reason (e.g., you need to present HTML), you could string together a block, survey and block using branching. The first block does nothing but presents instruction pages and then branches to the survey. After the survey is complete, it branches to another block that presents additional instruction pages:

<block preinstructions>
/ preinstructionpage = (page1)
/ branch = [survey.mysurvey]
</block>

<survey mysurvey>
...
/ branch = [block.postinstructions]
...
</survey>

<block postinstructions>
/ preinstructionpage = (page2)
</block>

At the expt level, you would launch the preinstructions block instead of directly launching the survey.

Hope this helps,
Sean

Sean,


I followed your suggestion on my script. However, when I leave the preinstruction page, it kicks me out and does not go to my survey. Would you happen to know what I am missing? please see my script below. It would be greatly appreciated if you could help.
