This script has the basic stages of a psychological experiment, organized using comments. First, it goes over informed consent. If the subject does not consent, they are brought directly to the end. If they consent, they are given instructions for the task. Then, the experimental trials take place (the word memory task from My 1st Script). After this, the subject is asked a few demographic questions in different formats (e.g. Likert scale, drop-down menu). Last, there is a debriefing about the purpose and hypothesis, and the experiment concludes.

Topics introduced: main.setfontsize(), radio(), if…else, select(), scale()
