The summarydata element enables a script to record a single row of summary data for each participant that runs a script. Typically, the summarydata element is used to save metrics that capture participants' overall performance on the script. The summary statics are saved to a separate file as the raw, trail-by-trial data file. Recording all of the relevant performance metrics into a summary data file can simplify data analysis by avoiding the often complicated process of calculating these metrics from the raw data. Summary data are saved as tab-delimited text.
The following records the subject id, start date, start time, and three performance metrics for each participant.
/ columns=[script.subjectid, script.startdate, script.starttime, expressions.da, expressions.db, expressions.d]
