    Individual Time Stamps Per Answer (case 25198)

    I have an anagram task for participants which has more than one answer per problem. Is there a way, in MediaLab, to get a time stamp for every answer submitted?

    Ex. OPRES

    Ans. 1 = PORES (time submitted)
    Ans. 2 = ROPES (time submitted)
    Ans. 3 = SPORE (time submitted)

    + time "given up" and moved on to next problem/question

    Use the @ parameter for each such item in your .que file. As detailed in the MediaLab manual (http://www.empirisoft.com/medialab/h...tm#timestamp);

    "By entering @ as a parameter for any item in a questionnaire, you can have MediaLab write a time stamp at the onset of that item in order to keep track of events in real time. When you do this, a time stamp will be appended to a file called "timestamps.csv" located in the Data folder. Each time stamp will include the Subject ID, the variable name, the time at which the item started (e.g., 12:33:22), the milliseconds elapsed from the beginning of the experiment and the number of milliseconds passed since the last timestamp. The timestamp function can be used with all item types."
