Using Qualtrics for Linguistic Research [script]

This is a tutorial developed by Zack Jaggers for conducting online research through Qualtrics. Whatever your platform, conducting online research can be a pain if you’re not able to customize everything to your needs with HTML or JavaScript knowledge.

I needed to run an online ABX discrimination task with over 300 randomized audio files. In short, I extracted Qualtrics file IDs from the HTML code in the Qualtrics file library and then recreated links in bulk in a spreadsheet so that they pipe into the built-in Loop & Merge feature on Qualtrics. Most of the footwork was done using Regular Expressions in Python.
