    Hi,
    I am trying to run a study on Mturk for the first time and I have very little programming experience. Please tell me what the easiest way to learn to do this would be. What programming language should I learn to use: Command line or java script. and does anyone have examples I can use to get me started.

    In principle it is not a complicated design. Most of it is questions and answers. The first part is a timed display of images with text. Then a test phase is when the same images and text should be displays with a question with that options.

    I am sure I will be able to catch on if I learn the basics and can get an example.

    I need to complete this study for my honors thesis and would really appreciate any help.

    I have used qualtrics for the first half but this part has timed displays of images with text in a learning phase. Do you know how to do that on qualtrics?

    Timed pages are pretty simple to set up in qualtrics. Do you need something more sophisticated than that?

    I do not, but there might be something in the Qualtrics support information about that: https://www.qualtrics.com/support/survey-platform/faqs/survey/
