Hi Dimitra,

Sorry for the late response.

What you want to do with the QRTEngine should definitely be possible. I’ll answer your question in order :).

Question 1: Yes

Question 2: You should create a block that starts with an Init question and ends with an Exit question. Any questions between that should be Stimulus questions without page breaks between them. The QRTEngine will advance through these blocks in the way defined by your configurations, which you should put into the Init question’s JavaScript. Please note that you’re allowed to have any number of Stimulus questions between the Init & Exit questions, so in your case you’ll have three. One for the first sentence, one for the second and then one for the truth value judgement part. Just as you would use the editor to create your questionnaire questions, you can use the editor to create your stimuli!

Question 3: I’m not sure what you mean by this. You can use the Loop & Merge to “pipe” in text to your stimuli (such as the sentence text). The stimulus data as such can be managed in a spreadsheet editor (Excel, google spreadsheet) and then copy pasted into the Loop & Merge spreadsheet.

Question 4: We strongly advise you to do so, as the QRTEngine has been made with that specific design pattern in mind. You can only get one trial per run through a block and Loop & Merge allows you to repeat blocks a set amount of times.

We hope this helps, if you have any remaining questions, do not hesitate to ask!

Best Regards,
