Tags are keywords defined within your protocol that allow you to refer to:

  1. particular files on your computer

  2. groups of stimulus files

  3. the result of a random selection from a group

Once defined, all three of these types of tags can be used similarly in protocol files. Tags provide a layer of abstraction that allows protocol files to group, select, and reference stimuli (audio, image, and video files on your computer) in dynamic and flexible ways.

Valid tag names...

  • must be unique (the same tag name cannot be defined as two separate files/groups)

  • must be single "words" that consist of letters, numbers, and underscores (no spaces, and no other symbols)

The first two types of tags - tags denoting particular stimulus files, and tags that are given to name groups of other tags - are defined near the start of your protocol, anywhere after the starting definitions and before your first STEP statement. See the following pages for more information on these tags.
