About Inquisit Web
Inquisit Web enables simple, convenient collection of rich psychological data remotely over the web. Inquisit Web is Inquisit Lab's online sibling and is ideal for mass testing, internet research, and accessing geographically dispersed populations.
You can use all the same assessment tools available for Inquisit lab except Inquisit web implements them online. If you are planning on accessing an online participant pool such as CloudResearch (formally TurkPrime) or Sona Systems then Inquisit Web is the best choice.
If you have never used Inquisit Web before then we recommend watching the video on how to setup a web script in the FAQ "How do I setup an Inquisit Web experiment?" below.
Accessing and using Inquisit Web
To access Inquisit Web users should contact the vLab Research Portal Manager, firstname.lastname@example.org and include their Monash email address. Students should CC in their supervisor asking for permission to obtain an Inquisit account.
Inquisit Web runs the same scripts as Inquisit Lab so you can create tests on the desktop and then implement them online. Inquisit Web will then produce an anonymous link for you to send to your participants or place on Qualtrics and/or Sona Systems or CloudResearch (described in the Select participants page).
Unique to Inquisit Web, when you logon you will see the same home screen as every other user. What this means is you will be able to see everyone else's active web scripts. Please be respectful of others work when accessing Inquisit web and do not edit other people's scripts.
To create a web script you need to access Inquisit web via the vLab and then logon. Next, choose the "Web Scripts" option in the menu on the left. You will be able to see the list of registered scripts on this page. To create your own script please press on the "Register New Script" button.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)
Note: vLab users do not need to purchase a license as instructed on the video (at 0:40-0:50'). Instead they need to contact the vLab Research Portal Manager, email@example.com and include their Monash email address.
Once you have collected data from the experimental tasks you will find the data located in the "Web Data Files" option in the left menu bar on the homepage.
Simply click on the file that corresponds to your experiment name.
The best data file type to import into SPSS from Inquisit or Qualtrics is normally a csv file. So if you are having any issues importing with an xlsx or sav file try a csv file instead.
If this doesn't work then contact support.
