I tried searching for this, but I could not find exactly what I was looking for. I am trying to program an experiment where participants read passages followed by a series of comprehension questions. Obviously, I want the comprehension questions to be recorded, but I'm not looking specifically for any reading measure during the passages. For this reason, I hoped to simply use either a PDF or HTML page as the item itself. For example, instead of writing the item in Inquisit, I was hoping to simply link the item to the HTML page that has the passage in it.
For example, if the Passage1 is in the HTML page titled passage1.html, I'd want the first item participants see to be passage1.html followed by seven or so comprehension questions.
I have a few questions related to this:
1. Can I use entire pages uploaded to the experiment as items in this way?
2. If yes, can I use PDFs as well as HTML pages - would that still work?
3. Is there an example script I could use as a starting point that would make this easier? I'm relatively new to Inquisit, so it's fairly overwhelming.
Any help would be greatly appreciated - thanks!
