Your experiments will be in the cloud, accessible at a unique address by any major browser. The platform can replace Matlab, E-prime, SuperLab and similar, because data collection can occur online AND offline.
We estimate the platform can cover around 80% of standard behavioral experiments. It can present images, sounds, video clips and text. It can record clicks, pressed buttons, input text. What else do you need?
Pretty much everything is customizable: presentation modes, response options, presentation times, ITI, ISI, fixation cross, text and background color, etc.
As long as you know (or learn) how to fill in a spreadsheet, you are fine. There is no programming involved on your side (but a lot on ours). Complexity through simplicity.
Chances are you don't need anything else. But write to us if you do.
Switching between them is as easy as specifying the file extension - literally. All major image, video and sound files supported.
Click stimuli, click buttons, press specific keys, or type text. The choice is yours.
Simultaneous or sequential presentation of stimuli. With or without a target image. Masked or unmasked. With full control over presentation times, ITI, ISI, etc.
Randomisation within and between blocks, feedback for incorrect trials, display average correct score, generate random code at the end. And working on many others.
Make your experiments available indefinitely at a permanent link with the "lock" option. Perfect for demonstration to students, reviewers and other researchers (just include the link in your paper).
Sophisticated platform, simple interface.

These are only four examples of the kind of tests you can design with Testable. The whole range is much larger. In fact, we believe Testable can cover the vast majority of the standard behavioral experiments.

This is a simple test in which participants have to select the test image that best matches the target.Try it

A brilliant combination of power, flexibility, and ease-of-use, Testable democratizes the process of online experiment-creation by removing, completely, the need to write a single line of computer code...in so doing, it greatly accelerates the idea-to-implementation process for both research and teaching applications.
Everyone in my lab, from undergraduates to postdocs, uses Testable to get experiments running online quickly and reliably. It's a great platform!
Testable provides a state-of-the-art platform for researchers, teachers, and students in behavioural and cognitive sciences to focus on what really matters: experimental design and data collection. Anybody who knows how to operate a spreadsheet software can use Testable to create and run experiments on the web and in the lab – without the need to code! Not only that, Testable allows easy sharing of experiments for seamless collaboration and exact replication. My students and I are avid users of Testable. Highly recommended!
I can focus on test design and data collection rather than trying to figure out how to program my experiments. I study rare populations that are spread out around the world, and now I can collect data online by having participants take tests from home and have the results appear in my secure account at the lab. I can also share the tasks that I designed with other researchers and collaborators without the need for them to download or purchase special software. Finally, it’s a great teaching tool because my students can use it easily to design their own experiments.
Part of the back-end infrastructure development was supported by an APS Teaching and Learning grant (2015).
