OpenSesame for (windows)tablets

Best Sebastiaan and others,

I am a researcher at the UvA, who wants to run an experiment with adolescents in a classroom. I am now looking what would be a practical way to run an experiment in a classroom. I was looking for programs which facilitates online experiment building (neurotask e.g.) , so we can run it on tablets. Now I saw that OpenSesame works on android, and now I am interested to use it so we will not need wifi. However I also saw this notion:

' OpenSesame runtime for Android is based on software by others that is no longer developed. As a result, we are unable to make sure that the runtime works with recent versions of Android. Windows 10 tablets with Intel processors are a good alternative.'

I would like to know which kind of processor is needed for the (windows) tablet to run OpenSesame offline and if this software is being supported. Our tasks will not involve special visual stimuli. Only some trials with choice-options, in which the participant also have the option to click on the choices of others.

My last question is whether the reaction time recording of OpenSesame will be less on a tablet.

Thank you in advance!
Best, Scarlett

  • Hi Scarlett,

    You can run the regular version of OpenSesame on any Windows tablet with an Intel processor, which means most tablets. A convenient option would be to get one of these 2-in-1 devices with a detachable keyboard. There are decent options in say the €200 - 300 price range. Nothing fancy, but sufficient for simple experiments.

    My last question is whether the reaction time recording of OpenSesame will be less on a tablet.

    Not necessarily. Of course, the slower the computer, the higher the risk of timing glitches. But for simple reaction time recording, a Windows tablet should be fine.

    Cheers!

    There's much bigger issues in the world, I know. But I first have to take care of the world I know.
