JATOS (Just Another Tool for Online Studies) is a platform that allows researchers to manage, distribute and run studies online using their own servers. Participants can access these studies via the internet on any device with a browser; and researchers can login to JATOS to upload, customize and manage studies, and export their data.
SOLO makes a JATOS instance available at no cost to researchers, and can offer limited technical support in building and running JATOS studies, as well as post-processing the data it generates. For more information, see SOLO JATOS server.
Building Studies for JATOS
OpenSesame & OSWeb
The full OpenSesame to JATOS workflow is explained in great detail in this YouTube playlist. Additionally, the OpenSesame website features a very active forum where enquiries about OSWeb and OpenSesame itself can be posted and browsed through.
According to the lab.js website:
“lab.js is a free, open, online study builder for the behavioral and cognitive sciences. (it works great in the lab, too)”.
According to the jsPsych website:
JATOS can be configured to automatically receive information about participants, sessions, groups etc. before a study begins, or to pass study information and results on to another site after the study has finished. This generally occurs using Query Strings that conforms to the other applications specifications. This allows, for instance, that students are automatically assigned SONA credits after successfully completing a study.
