Hello,

I am going throught the tutorial of Inquisit 6 from here and when I try to reproduce the script the variables element is greyed out.

Is there a "variables" element in Inquisit 6 or I am doing something wrong? 

Best wishes


Dave

You're not doing anything wrong -- the <variables> element has been retired and does not exist anymore in Inquisit 6. In the typical case where you used <variables> to assing different block orders between-subjects

<expt>
/ preinstructions = (intro)
/ postinstructions = (end)
/ blocks = [1=up_practice; 2=block2; 3=block3; 4=block4; 5=block5]
</expt>

<variables>
/ group = (1 of 2) (block2=fi_practice, block3=incompatible, block4=if_practice, block5=compatible)
/ group = (2 of 2) (block2=if_practice, block3=compatible, block4=fi_practice, block5=incompatible)
</variables>


this has to be replaced with two <expt> elements performing the assignment instead, i.e.

<expt>
/ preinstructions = (intro)
/ postinstructions = (end)
/ blocks = [1=up_practice; 2=fi_practice; 3=incompatible; 4=if_practice; 5=compatible]
/ subjects = (1 of 2)
</expt>

<expt>
/ preinstructions = (intro)
/ postinstructions = (end)
/ blocks = [1=up_practice; 2=if_practice; 3=compatible; 4=fi_practice; 5=incompatible]
/ subjects = (2 of 2)
</expt>
