STEP System for Teaching Experimental Psychology

STEP (System for Teaching Experimental Psychology) is an project designed to maximize the use of E-Prime experiment generation system (EGS). In principle, we wanted to support other EGS systems too, but E-Prime seems to be the clearest standard. STEP was organized by Brian MacWhinney in the Department of Psychology at Carnegie Mellon University. Susan Campbell, now at the Center for the Advanced Study of Language, created most of the E-Prime scripts. Other contributors include Ping Li of the University of Richmond, Chris Schunn of the University of Pittsburgh, and James St. James at Millikin University.
