@newTrial(
@    newText("test sentence", "The cat chases the mouse")
@        .print()
@    ,
@    newScale("natural", 5)
@        .slider()

  • Without the footer, the trial defined above would be validated immediately after it has started running, since it includes no wait command. Thankfully, the footer adds a button at the bottom of the page that must be clicked for validation.
