Tutorial: IAT with Custom Categories and Items

This tutorial demonstrates how to customzie the Implicit Attitude Task (IAT) as developed by Tony Greenwald et al. The tutorial starts with an IAT template that measures implicit attitudes towards flowers and insects, and shows how to easily replace those categories with your own custom categories and stimulus items.

On the following pages, Inquisit commands are printed in blue, and comments are printed in black.
