Hello,
I'm putting together a study that includes several scripts batched together.  I want to let participants have the ability to quit early from the study if they want to withdraw, especially given there are multiple tasks so they might just decide its not worth it for them.  I know they can use crtl+Q but they would have to do it for each script in order to actually exit the study.  Is there any shortcut for them to quit the entire batch?

Thanks!

Dave

You can make something like this happen by using the script.abort() function in your scripts. It comes with the option to terminate the entire batch:

I have the same question - can this command be set at the batch level, so that I don't have to edit every single script?

Under Inquisit 4? No. If you are using Inquisit 6, you can make use of <defaults> in batch scripts and define a custom /quitcommand. Or you can make use of the built-in method to abort an entire batch of scripts (CTRL+SHIFT+Q).
