Laboratory software for the IAT (operates under Windows operating systems)
The generic IAT software was updated on 26 Dec 2007 to
correct some variable -naming errors in the SPSS syntax that was posted
26 Aug 07. There is a new pdf file that gives an overview
of computation of alternative forms of the D measure.
Further notes available in links below labeled Read
this. Generic Inquisit syntax for creating IAT scripts
(dated 26 Nov 2005) continues to be available in the Generic
IAT zipfile download (see further description below).
26 Aug 2007:
The generic IAT software was updated on 26 Aug 2007 to
correct a minor error in computation of error-penalty scores (the error
was that latencies greater than 10000 ms were not deleted in the computation
in syntax files dated 26 Nov 05).
These files have subsequently been replaced as described in the posting
for 29 Dec 2007.

Software for Self-esteem IAT (operates on Macintosh
computers, using PsyScope)
Contents of this downloadable zipfile include: a PsyScope
(http://psy.ck.sissa.it/) Self-Esteem IAT script, six text files that
contain stimuli for the Self-Esteem IAT and corresponding self-report
measures, and SPSS syntax that reads the PsyScope data computes IAT
measures using the Greenwald et al. (JPSP, 2003 - see below) improved
algorithm. Clicking here
leads to the Behavior Research Methods article reporting these. Scroll down if necessary and click on the "Supplementary Material" link after arriving there. Further detail can be obtained from
the first author, Jennifer Borton (firstname.lastname@example.org), or from the BRM article: Borton, J. L. S., Oakes,
M. A., Van Wyk, M. E., & Zink, T. A. (2007). Using PsyScope
to conduct IAT experiments on Macintosh computers. Behavior Research

the remaining items)
IAT zipfile download (updated 29
Dec 07) Contains software for creating IAT experimental
scripts and analyzing IAT data.
- -- Use Inquisit
(updated 26 Nov 05) to create
experimental scripts. Read
this for explanation of experimental script production.
- -- Use SPSS
(updated 29 Dec 07) to analyze
the resulting data.. Read
this for explanation of data analysis using the SPSS scripts.
The just-updated (26 Nov 05) syntax should be more user friendly
than previous versions of syntax I have provided. It also
corrects a minor error in the previous version's computation of
error-penalty forms of the improved IAT scoring algorithm.

syntax (as of 10 Aug 05, this
syntax has been updated with a correction for the error-penalty
computational flaw noted above. Thanks to Brian Nosek for
the SAS version of the new scoring algorithm. To use it, remove
the .txt extension before use this with SAS. Note: If this
