Design, method, and instructions
My study consists of a computerised set of psychological tests (Simon test and Wisconsin Card-Sorting Test). There is *no* need to install any software. The experiment is designed with PEBL (http://pebl.sourceforge.net/) which is a free software, licensed under the GPL. [As far as I know the version which doesn't require installation can be run on a PC/Windows. There is also possibility to install the PEBL on MAC and run the experiment form your desktop].
If you would like to be involved in the study please write me back and I will send you a zip file with instructions and executable files. The zip file is around 14MB thus I do not want to spam your box.
I put this file on a FTP [.zip] for reference.
The experiment is fully automated, i.e. once you start it you are presented with all instructions needed and all windows with tasks are displayed automatically.
The experiment would also require filling in a language history and
questionnaire (LEAP-Q) [.doc]. It collects some statistical data, which will be used as specified in
The experiment takes around 15-20 minutes (max) to finish. One needs only a mouse and a keyboard and a colour monitor.
Although there is no rush I would be happy to receive the results back by Wednesday (22.08).
