Overview


This page contains a listing of all the task builder tutorials available in Gorilla.

Each tutorial is a task which walks you through how to use a zone in Gorilla. Preview the task for an explanation about using the zone, then use the task as an example of how to set up the zone yourself.

Each entry includes a link to the tutorial task and a brief description.

Content Zones


Using the Rich Text Zone

The Rich Text Zone can be used to format the text you are displaying, for example to create headings or lists. This tutorial demonstrates how to use markdown and HTML in the Rich Text Zone.

Response Zones


Using the Continue Button Zone

The Continue Button Zone progresses the task to the next screen, when the button is clicked by the participant. You can see it used in the Rich Text Zone tutorial.


Using the Response Slider Zone

The Response Slider Zone lets participants give a response by dragging a slider to position it on a scale. This tutorial demonstrates how to use and set up the zone.

Feedback Zones


Using the Progress Bar Zone

The Progress Bar Zone adds a progress bar to the task screen, showing participants how far they are through the task. This tutorial demonstrates how to use and set up the zone.

Control Zones


Using the Early Exit Zone

The Early Exit Zone(https://gorilla.sc/support/reference/task-builder-zones#earlyexit) adds a button to the screen which participants can click to end the task early. This tutorial demonstrates how to use and set up the zone.


Using the Jump to Row Zone

The Jump to Row Zone lets you change the normal progression of the task by defining a row in your task spreadsheet that you want your participant to jump to. You should use the zone in conjunction with in-task branching, moving participants to different spreadsheet rows based on their responses. This tutorial demonstrates how to use and set up the zone.


Using the Timelimit (section) Zone

The Timelimit (section) Zone allows you to set a timelimit for a section of your task. You can end a series of trials when the participant has exceeded the timelimit for completing them. This tutorial demonstrates how to use and set up the zone.

Advanced Zones


Using the Audio Recording Zone

The Audio Recording Zone allows you to record audio from participants using their microphone. This tutorial demonstrates how to use and set up the zone and access the audio file.


Using the Change Blindness Zone

The Change Blindness Zone is used specifically for setting up change blindness style tasks. It allows you to alternate between dispaying two images. This tutorial demonstrates how to use and set up the zone.


Using the Click Painting Zone

The Click Painting Zone allows participants to click on an image, creating a coloured dot and recording the coordinates of the click location. This tutorial demonstrates how to use and set up the zone.


Using the Go/No-Go Audio Zone

The Go/No-Go Audio Zone allows you to present an audio stimuli to which participants can give either a response or no response. No response will be recorded as a 'No Go', unlike most Gorilla zones which would record no response as incorrect. This tutorial demonstrates how to use and set up the zone.


Using the Keyboard Hold/Release Zone

The Keyboard Hold/Release Zone allows you to record the duration a key is held for or the point at which it is released. It can be used to control screen progression.


Using the Mouse Tracking Zone

The Mouse Tracking Zone is used for recording the coordinates of participants' mouse movements across the screen. This tutorial demonstrates how to use and set up the zone and how to access its metrics.


Using the Reading Zone

The Reading Zone allows you to present text to participants in sections, rather than presenting a block of text all at once. The presentation can be paced or self-paced. This tutorial demonstrates how to use and set up the zone.
