Remote Data Collection with E-Prime 3.0
E-Prime Go is now available for E-Prime 3.0 users! As is standard with all E-Prime Licenses, the number of experiments that you can create and the amount of data that you can collect is unlimited. Using E-Prime Go, you can pack up your experiment, send the link to your participants to complete, and your participants send the data back to you. Share and store your experiments and data files on the file sharing site of your preference.
To access E-Prime Go, simply register your E-Prime 3.0 serial number on our support site to access the E-Prime Go application as well as the User Manual. E-Prime Go is currently in beta version while we gather your feedback over the next few days, so please share your thoughts with us!
E-Prime Go is currently compatible with Windows 10 for the researcher’s computer; however, participants can use Windows 7, 8, or 10. Please review the tutorials on our YouTube channel to see different options for data collection. In general, you simply need a way to deliver the task and retrieve the data files (e.g., file sharing site, email).
*Requires participants to have a Google account for data upload.
Stay tuned for E-Prime Go updates over the coming weeks as we add new features!
Verifying Machine Specifications & Timing
If you will be analyzing reaction time data, we recommend confirming with your participants that their machine meets E-Prime 3.0 Minimal Requirements. Additionally, we recommend participants run the PcQualify application before beginning data collection to ensure it meets the minimum requirements. Information can be found on how to download PcQualify in the following article: PcQualify for E-Prime Go / E-Prime 3.0.
Tips on confirmation of machine specifications and timing:
- View the Experiment Advisor Report (EAR) generated with every experiment run. This file will be included in the zip folder that is submitted back to you. The EAR contains details about the participant’s machine, including device information and other applications running alongside the experiment.
- View the dxdiag.txt file generated with an E-Prime Go experiment. E-Prime Go has a “Collect DirectX machine information” checkbox that generates a dxdiag file. This file provides you details about the system and may be used to diagnose any potential issues.
- Insert an InLine Object with our sample script (Verifying your E-Prime Go Timing) into your experiment to verify machine timing.
We have increased the number of users who can simultaneously access the E-Prime 2.0 and/or E-Prime 3.0 Group Licenses at PST during the COVID-19 closures. If you need to use E-Studio during this time and do not have your USB License Key, please email us for instructions on how to access our license remotely.
If you have E-Prime 2.0 and would like to upgrade to E-Prime 3.0, you can save 20% by purchasing an Upgrade License. The E-Prime 3.0 Upgrade License validation process requires your E-Prime 2.0 License Key. If you would like to upgrade to E-Prime 3.0 but your E-Prime 2.0 key is locked in your lab, please contact us.
