Hello,

Is it possible to import data from a csv into an Inquisit script? We are running at two-part experiment on mTurk in which participants first fill out some questionnaires and then return at a later date to do a task. For the second part, we want to be able to give participants certain information based on our analysis of their performance on the first part, which will be stored in a csv along with their mTurk IDs. Is there any straightforward way of importing the info directly from the csv?

Many thanks!

No, you cannot import from an CSV. Inquisit scripts can read in code from external files via <include> elements, however those files need to conform to standard Inquisit syntax.

Hello,
Although there isn't a way to import CSV data directly into an Inquisit script, you could fairly easily use a spreadsheet app such as Excel to automatically generate a text file from the CSV data that formats the data as Inquisit syntax for elements such as <values>, <item> or <list> depending on how you wish to use those data. You can then include the generated file using the <include> command.

Is it still not possible to import csv's into inquisit in V6?  Just checking before I start manually coding a whole bunch of values.

No, Inquisit 6 cannot read CSVs.

Ok I'm going to write an R function to convert csv's into Inquisit lists.  We have >100k values to write.  If this works perhaps it will be of general use.

My solution is here for anyone interested.  Inquisit compiled with the lists copied and pasted into my iqx file.  https://github.com/UNCDEPENdLab/clock2/blob/main/code/convert_csv_to_inquisit_list.R
