Finish on keystroke (IAT/IRT studies)


The "Finish on keystroke" option is a similar feature to the "finish on click" option. Both ends item display (image or video) after a participant makes an action:

  • click on the mapped area,
  • press any key on a keyboard (especially useful for IAT/IRT studies).

If a participant won't click/press a key, the item display will end after set "display time".
