Gorilla is a research platform for behavioural scientists that provides a powerful and secure way of creating, running and sharing questionnaires, tasks and experiments online.
Create your questionnaire by selecting from our numerous questionnaire widgets. The live preview ensures you know exactly what your questionnaire will look like and how it will behave.
Create the task structure and then specify the trial content via a spreadsheet. Within the spreadsheet you can specify randomisation at both the trial level and block level. You can present and collect a wide range of stimuli and responses.
Use the intuitive experiment tree to design your experiment. Link together questionnaires, tasks and control nodes to create novel procedures.
The Code Editor:
You can even integrate third party libraries (jsPsych, voice recognition, feature detection) to collect novel data.
Task Builder Scripts:
Use the Script Page to add custom scripts into your Tasks, giving you the freedom to adapt tasks built in the task builder to meet your exact requirements.
Copy, use and adapt our existing library of custom scripts straight into your own tasks.
Questionnaire Script Widget:
Use the Script Widget in the Questionnaire Builder, to access the Gorilla API and post-process your questionnaire data.
We provide a wide range of experiment deployment options.
And a range of ways to limit participation based on device type, location and speed of internet connection.
Data Collection: Task data is provided in long-format (one row per trial) in a format which can be easily downloaded as CSV, XLSX or ODS files and pivoted into short format (one row per participant).
Questionnaire data can be downloaded in either short-format (one row per participant) or long-format (one row per trial), as CSV, XLSX or ODS files.
All data you collect is owned by you.
Our secure data storage, located within the EU is end-to-end encrypted and fully complies with Data Protection Regulation [EU & UK] (GDPR), the British Psychological Society (BPS) and National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Guidelines.
Publish your Tasks, Questionnaires and Experiments on Gorilla Open Materials, our open-access repository of research materials. Control access to your Materials using the permissions settings and then add additional information and images to explain your procedure. With preferred citation, you can include a link to your published paper.
