Using the form plugins

If forms are slow, see this page.

A number of commonly used forms are available as ready-made plugins. These allow you to use common forms, without any need for scripting.

  • form_consent is a simple digital consent form (disclaimer: some journals may require written consent)
  • form_multiple_choice allows you to present multiple choice questions
  • form_text_display is a simple text display that you can use to show instructions etc.
  • form_text_input is a simple text input display that allows you to ask a question and collect a multi-character response from the participant

The form_base plugin is special. It allows you to define custom forms using OpenSesame script, as described here:
