EyeQuestion 5 offers the possibility to create the virtual reality (VR) questionnaires.
In the following guide we will outline the basics to start designing a VR project.
The immersive projects and questions are available depending on your license type, please reach out to our support team or your sales agent for more information on this.
Enabling VR in project settings
The first step is to enable your project as VR. After creating a project, go to Settings>Project Settings>Enable XR
Enabling VR screen settings
With this setting enabled you will be able to modify the screen properties in order to include VR settings. Click on edit screen properties, and you will be able to enable VR.
Modifying VR screen settings
From the edit screen there are important settings that can be modified.
You can use the Background source to pick images from the EyeQuestion library. If you select Custom, you will be able to select from your own images. This can be either a 360° image or 360° video.
The User Input Device will indicate wheatear participants answer through their gaze or with the go controller.
The Rotation will rotate the image starting point.
There is also the possibility to select from a library of available sounds, these sounds can be play in loop if this setting is enabled.
If VR product is set, this image will be displayed on all the questions of the screen.
Adding VR questions
There are already 6 pre-defined immersive questions that are compatible with VR projects. Questions outside the folder 10.Immersive Questions VR (ADV) are non compatible with immersive VR projects.
After the screen has been set, go to Add questions>Immersive questions VR. From here you can pick the questions that are optimized to use with VR.
Adding VR questions: Category/Hedonic (One-choice)
example below a category question has been added. In this case we also have
added some picture to each item to increase the immersive experience. If you
click on the play icon you can add an image or a 3D model.
If you do not add an image, it is possible to use the description field to show the answer options.
In addition, each immersive question has its own VR settings.
The Question Wait setting is the amount of seconds before the question is displayed.
Question Angle determines the location of the screen. The default is 0: the question is displayed in front of you.
When Auto Submit is enabled, when an answer is received the question will auto submit the answer.
The Angle determines the angle in between the items (in degrees).
Gaze Duration is the time a participant has to focus on an item before it is selected.
When the Use Instruction Setting is enabled, then instructions can be added to a participant via the Instruction Text setting.
Normally in an EyeQuestion project (non immersive), all the questions that are included on one screen are shown at the same time. In a VR project, the questions that are underneath one screen are displayed one by one after each other.
To add an instruction box you can create a category question without answer options (not mandatory) and use the instruction text option.
For the moment, the following options are not compatible with immersive VR projects: branching (show on switch, screen/question conditions), placeholders When you create a project with a design, you can only use runtime options “Automatically” and “ No validation”
