What's New in Inquisit 6
Inquist 6 introduces a whole new level or power and flexibility while remaining as easy as ever to use. Create rich surveys with skip logic, input validation, and a large selection of question types. Easily program dynamic and adaptive tests that use sophisticated branching algorithms and user-defined stimulus sets. Track performance with Inquisit's built-in statistics, or define your own custom metrics.
With Inquisit 6 Web Edition, leverage all of the power and precision of Inquisit 6 over the web. With just a few mouse clicks, you can administer Inquisit experiments over your LAN or the Internet. Do mass testing without all the cumbersome installation and registration procedures.
A Complete Survey Package.
Inquisit now allows you to create rich questionnaires and surveys:
- • Display multiple questions per page.
- • Allow users to navigate back and forward across pages, or enforce forward only navigation.
- • Choose from an array of user interface options for multiple choice questions with mutually inclusive or exclusive options, as well as an "other" option with free text entry,
- • Text entry with rich validation rules covering almost any input format. Use built-in validation rules for common data such as dates, phone numbers, zip codes, email addresses, or build custom validation rules using regular expressions.
- • Gather ratings along continuous scales (aka Visual Analogue Scales) in which responses are made by moving a slider back and forth or up and down along a continuum.
- • Conditionally add or skip pages based on prior responses, elapsed time, random selection, and a wide • variety of other variables.
- Incorporate sequences of stimuli into a survey, including including text, pictures, video, sound, and port signals.
- • Run surveys standalone or seamlessly integrated with performance measures.
- • Record your data in ready-to-analyze tab delimited format, with each respondent saved to a separate line, or record survey data using the same file and format as that of performance trials.
- • Customize the style and layout of survey screens and particular questions.
Inquisit 6 introduces a simple and natural expression syntax that adds a whole new dimension of programmability.
- • Easily create dynamic tasks that adapt based on a wide range of variables, including sophisticated performance metrics, elapsed time, trial counts, randomly selected values, and more.
- • Use Inquisit's built in statistics to track performance or define your own custom metrics. Present these metrics on the screen, or use them to direct the flow of an experiment.
- • Design adaptive tasks with sophisticated skip, repeat, and branching algorithms.
- • Create stimulus sets based on user responses and performance metrics. Allow participants to select from arrays of stimuli presented on the screen. Continually add and change stimulus items throughout the course of an experiment.
- • Define custom variables and update their values at the beginning or end of trials, blocks, or the experiment.
- • Leverage Inquisit's numerous built-in mathematical, logical, trigonometric, and statistical functions and constants.
- • Write expressions using arithmetic operations, value comparisons (greater than, less than, equal or not equal), logical operations (e.g., and, or, not), function calls, and if-then-else logic.
- • Random assignment to between-subject conditions.
- • Non-numeric subject id's.
- • Run experiments in windowed mode as well as fullscreen.
- • Improved graphics performance on Vista.
- • Track respondents by IP or MAC Address.
- • Improved visual feedback for participants as Inquisit Web Edition downloads and initializes large scripts.
