Hi there,
I really need some help, as I am using two memory tasks on Inquisit: 1. The Face Name Association Task, 2. The Groton Maze Task.
Both these tasks are available from the Inquisit library.
They both include a 30min delay in the middle of them, and then a delayed recall section at the end.
Could someone help me edit the syntax/ help me find a way to get rid of this section of both tasks. 

Really appreciate any help!

In the Face Name Association Task, there is a parameter called "recallDelay" as detailed in the script's user manual: https://www.millisecond.com/download/library/v6/facenameassociativememoryexam/facenameassociativememoryexam/facenameassociativememoryexam.manual



You can set that parameter's value to your liking to reduce or eliminate the 30 minute delay entirely.

Similarly, in the Groton Maze Task (Inquisit 6 version), there is a parameter called "delayDuration" which you can set according to your preferences:
https://www.millisecond.com/download/library/v6/grotonmazetest/grotonmazetest/grotonmazetest/grotonmazetest.manual
The Inquisit 5 version of the task doesn't have this paramter and does not enforce any fixed delay.

Thanks so much for your quick response!
How do I actually go about doing this? Do I download the face name association test and Groton maze task in inquist 5 and edit there and save it?
When I download the syntax it comes up with a different script to the one that you have sent? So I'm not really sure how to actually go about editing it and saving it.

Thanks for you help,
Hilary

Or do I upload it as a webscript in my account and edit there somehow?
Also if I want to get rid of the delay and any delayed recall questions after it, what do I edit the code to? Do I delete that line of code? or make it = 0 or something?
Thanks again for you help!

You donwload the version you need from the library. If you're going to use Inquisit 5, download the Inqusit 5 version. You then open the file you downloaded in Inquisit Lab. Read through the user manual at the top. Then change the settings you want to change and save the file.

Once you're done with all of that, you can upload the scripts to your Inquisit Web account.

Hi dave,
Do you think you would be able to send me an example of what I would change the code to, in order to get rid of the delay and the delayed recall questions.
I have been going through the scripts and trying to edit it, but I'm having no luck. :(

Thanks very much Dave, that helped me get rid of the delay!
However there are still questions which follow the delay that I want to get rid of. How would I go about this, where is the syntax I would need to edit / delete? :)
