Inquisit: Simple Reaction Time, Four Choice Reaction Time, and Typing Test

In 2007 I was looking for a tool for running psychological experiments online. It was important that the online tool could record reaction time. After a little exploration I started using Inquisit.

I’ve attached a script that I wrote which provides a basic measure of simple reaction time, four-choice reaction time, and a typing test. I thought I’d make the script available for others to use and modify. The program was written for Inquisit 3.0. The Inquisit website has a pile of additional scripts. It also has a fully functional trial-version of the software.

Click on the link below to download the script. Change the file extension to ".exp" to associate with Inquisit.
