General Information

Elements are the modules of each stage. A stage has two areas in which you can add modules: participants and lecturer.

You can chose from text elements, input elements (numerical input, likert scales, …), programme elements and output elements (histograms, bar charts, …). These can be combined and arranged as you like.

Tip: Input and output elements should be located in different stages in order to collect all input in the first stage. Then, the lecturer can synchronise the game and turn to the output elements in the next stage.

Element Number The elements are numbered (E1, E2, …). This also defines the order of display in a stage. Elements can be moved within a stage by pressing on the arrows Updown.JPG.
Element Type and Help Beside the number of the element, you can see the element type. Clicking on the info button next to the element type leads you to the respective description in this wiki.
Groups, Treatments and Roles If you have defined groups, treatments or roles, you can also choose whether the element shall be displayed for all groups, treatments or roles.
Delete Element You can delete the element by pressing Rubbish.JPG.
Copy Element You can copy an element by pressing Copyelement.JPG.
Cut and Paste You can cut and paste an element by pressing Cut.JPG.
Display Conditions You can specify the display conditions for an element by pressing Brille.JPG.
