emosys_sr 1.0

A new generation interactive rating study form generator.

This Open Source Program (free for non-commercial use) generates rating forms interactively for pictures, movies, sounds or text. Currently The generator runs only under OS X Mountain Lion 10.8+, the studies run on any server which has PERL installed. The layout and construction of the studies guarantee high quality results.

No additional installations are necessary - besides a functional webserver with PERL - runs on all major browsers.

The program uses adjustable bipolar and unipolar sliders for rating studies and questionnaires and can randomize stimuli and sliders in order to prevent order effects. It will create a standolone HTML source code for deployment on any server runing PERL.  In addition it is multiuser friendly and the number of rating instances is only limited by the server.
