Script 1.3

Jaap Murre

Tutorial demo from Chapter 1 from the ‘Getting Started’ book implements a short free-recall experiment. A few words are held in a JavaScript array. After some instructions, they are presented in a for loop. After that the subject receives additional instructions, to count back in threes. The response is collected by presenting a large text area where the subject can type all words remembered. The response is not analyzed in this script.

If you are a registered user and signed in, you can here copy this script and its stimuli to your own account, where you can edit it and change it in any way you want.

It is absolutely free to register (no credit card info asked!). You can then instantly copy this experiment with one click and edit it, change its accompanying texts, its landing page, stimuli, etc. Invite your colleagues, friends, or students to check out your experiment. There is no limit on how many people can do your experiment, even with a free account.

The catch? There is no catch! Just keep in mind that with a free account, you cannot collect data. For teaching that is usually not a problem. For research, prepaid data collection (unlimited subjects) starts as low as €10.00 for a 10-day period.

var i;
var words = ['glass', 'chair', 'train', 'balloon', 
             'horse', 'curtain', 'pencil', 'baker'];

text("Try to remember the following words");
await(5000); // 5000 ms or 5 s

for (i = 0; i < words.length; i = i + 1)

text("Now, count back in threes starting with 307: 307, 304, 301,...");

largeinput("Write down the words remembered","words_remembered");

text("Thank you for participating!");
