I tried to look for an answer in the forum but couldn't find anything ... In the study that I am preparing, after we debrief the participants we want to make sure that they understand the deception of the study. Therefore we have two questions that they have to answer correctly in order to advance and finish the study. Those are yes/no questions. The right answer for both is 'no', therefore I want to display a message that says something like "The story about Jane was a fictional story. It was NOT a true story." This is the script I have so far that just shows the question and requires an answer without a message if they answer incorrectly:

<radiobuttons TrueStory>
/caption = "Was the story about Jane being a missing person a true story?"
/options = ("Yes"; "No")
/optionvalues = ("1"; "2")
/correctresponse = ("2")
/orientation = vertical
/required = true
</radiobuttons>

<surveypage TrueStory>
/ fontstyle = ("Arial", 2.5%, false, false, false, false, 5, 1)
/subcaptionfontstyle = ("Arial", 2.5%, false, false, false, false, 5, 1)
/itemfontstyle = ("Arial", 2.5%, false, false, false, false, 5, 1)
/responsefontstyle = ("Arial", 2%, false, false, false, false, 5, 1)
/questions = [1 = TrueStory]
/showpagenumbers = false
/showquestionnumbers = false
</surveypage>

<survey TrueStory>
/pages = [1 = TrueStory]
/ screencolor = black
/ txcolor = white
</survey>

That worked! Is there any way to put the error message on the same page as the question though? With this script it's making it go to a new page and then back to the question

No, there isn't. You can make it go back to the question page automatically, though, if that's what you prefer.
