E-Prime Go is a free download for E-Prime 3.0 users! You can host your experiments on our site and share the link with your participants. Once the participant completes the experiment, their data will be automatically uploaded to your account. To access E-Prime Go, simply register your E-Prime 3.0 serial number on our support site to download the E-Prime Go application.
Drag and drop design.
Build experiments with text, images, sound, and videos by dragging and dropping objects onto your timeline. Take advantage of free templates and 100+ pre-built experiments in our Experiment and STEP Libraries.
E-Prime 3.0 reports timing accuracy to the millisecond precision level. Be sure to use our testing tools to confirm your computer hardware is capable of critical timing. Add Chronos to your research setup to verify the display timing of your monitor, obtain millisecond-accurate participant responses, as well as millisecond-accurate sound onset times.
Unlimited Data Collection.
Collect unlimited data in the lab with E-Run and remotely with E-Prime Go! E-Studio provides descriptive menus and intuitive data logging options. E-DataAid provides the tools to filter, analyze, and export your data.
Use Task Events to send and receive triggers through Chronos, socket, serial, or parallel port. Use Chronos Adapters for a simple connection to a wide range of EEG, fNIRS, and physiological devices to send and receive digital triggers. If you are using a wireless EEG system, we also have an E-Prime package file for LSL hosted on GitHub.
Dedicated support team
We have a dedicated team of technical consultants available to assist you with experiment setup, troubleshooting, and best practice tips. Submit a support request on our support site.
