Javascript Pointers for Online Experiments in Psychology

A lot of the last term has been spent developing methods and procedures for moving behavioral studies on line. A lot of the responsibility for this transition has fallen on the shoulders of the graduate and undergraduate students and in the process we have experienced a lack of tutorial, step-by-step material. An undergraduate honors student working with James Danckert and myself, Isabella Sewell, was caught in this bind, and did yeoman's work to get her study up and running this term. Then she decided to compound her efforts by being generous and recording detailed notes on the steps and tools she undertook so that others might have an easier time following her. While much of this will be specific to UWaterloo, and especially our lab group, there is still a lot of good general advice here and therefore we are sharing it here. If you just want to read her advice take a look the pdf. If you think it is something you would like to adapt to your own purposes you can also grab a docx version for editing. Please though remember to credit Isabella if you adapt her work. She put a lot of time and effort into this and deserves the acknowledgement. Thank you Isabella.
