    How can I limit the time for a response while allowing to continue (case 33480)

    Hi,

    I read through the manual and also used the search console in this forum, but I did not find a solution to my problem.

    I use an Instruction task in order to show an image. The participants have to use the image to solve a manual task I hand them. The Instruction Item should only be shown for a limited time (d360) because the participants can take really long to solve the task.

    Here comes the problem: Some people solve the task in 120 seconds and I want them to be able to click "Continue" to get to the next step of the experiment. I basically want a duration parameter that lets the participants also skip the task before the time is up.

    Is there any possibility to do that?

    Best regards

    Dennis

    Hello Dennis,

    The use of the d parameter prevents the Contiune button from appearing until the specified amount of time elapses. So participants cannot manually advance to the next item on their own.

    If you have DirectRT, it would be straightforward to set up an image to appear for a specified amount of time and let participants manually advance before that amount of time elapses. You can also embed it in a larger MediaLab .que or .exp file.

    The usage of the d parameter keeps the tiffany brissette Contiune get from appearing until the predefined proportion of time sneaks past. So individuals can't physically advance to the accompanying thing in solitude.
