I'm working on an experiment in which participants have to respond by clicking with the mouse in a Likert-box. The duration of each trial should be a constant, say 13000 ms. However, I'd like a short "OK"-message to appear when a response is given, so that participants know that their response has been registered and that they should not keep clicking in boxes but just wait till the next trial starts.
Any ideas on how to make this work? So far, I've been messing with the /responsemessage attribute, but that message only appears after the trial has ended, and not after a response is given.
Thanks in advance for your ideas and suggestions!
A setup along these lines should work (tested with Inquisit 2.0.61004.7):
<likert mylikert>/ stimulusframes = [1=erase, question]/ responsemessage = (anyresponse, registered, 0)/ trialduration = 13000</likert><text question>/ items = ("Q1", "Q2", "Q3", "Q4")/ position = (50%, 30%)/ select = sequence</text><text registered>/ items = ("Response registered. Please wait for the next question!")/ position = (50%, 70%)/ erase = false</text><shape erase>/ shape = rectangle/ size = (100%, 100%)/ color = (255, 255, 255)</shape><block myblock>/ trials = [1-4=mylikert]</block><expt>/ blocks = [1=myblock]</expt>
