newController(ELEMENT_NAME: string, CONTROLLER: string, KEY_VALUE_PAIRS: array)
  • ELEMENT_NAME: The name of the newly-created element.
  • CONTROLLER : The inserted Ibex controller.
  • KEY_VALUE_PAIRS : An array of key-value pairs; see each individual Ibex controller for details.

note(s)

The currently supported Ibex controllers are:

  • AcceptabilityJudgment: makes it straightforward to present a sentence together with a rating scale; it is a combination of the FlashSentence and Message controllers - press above to see more information
  • DashedAcceptabilityJudgment: like AcceptabilityJudgment, but it uses DashedSentence instead of FlashSentence; this is useful for running speeded acceptability judgment tasks (which otherwise require some rather creative use of shuffle sequences) - press above to see more information
  • DashedSentence: sentence is displayed as a sequence of dashes - press above to see more information
  • FlashSentence: sentence is displayed for a certain defined period - press above to see more information
  • Form collects data from an HTML form presented to the participant - press above to see more information
  • Message: message is displayed to user, and it is usually calling for the action - press above to see more information
  • Question: question is displayed to user, and it is usually calling for the action - press above to see more information
  • Separator”: controls if the previous item was completed - press above to see more infomration
  • VBox: makes it possible to combine multiple controllers to form a single controller - press above to see more information
