The Test Manager dialog permits configuration of properties to accelerate testing, automate response input, run partial experiments, and employ other methods of testing and debugging.
The Clock Scale setting allows the user to set the speed at which the clock will execute during the E-Run Test session, primarily to allow for accelerated experiment testing. The default setting (1x Speed) executes the experiment at normal speed (i.e., a 1 second duration setting takes 1 second). Use of the 1.5x, 2x, or 4x settings speeds up execution (e.g., the 4x setting runs 4 times as fast such that a 1 second duration setting is reduced to 250 msec at runtime). Clock Scale may be used in combination with Auto Response to rapidly execute an experiment and generate a test data file. Refer to the Timing tab section in GENERAL: Experiment Object  for additional information pertaining to clock options.
The Auto Response setting enables or disables the Auto Response feature during the session launched from the Test Manager dialog. This feature is primarily for testing purposes, and also primarily for use with the keyboard device. When used in combination with the Clock Scale setting, Auto Response may be used to accelerate the completion of experiment test sessions (e.g., in order to verify that all resource files are available, or to generate a test data file). Refer to GENERAL: Auto Response  and GENERAL: Configure KeyboardDevice for Auto Response  for information pertaining to configuration of the Auto Response feature in E-Prime.
Experiment Advisor Report
The Experiment Advisor Report setting enables or disables the generation of a report file at the end of a test session summarizing the findings determined by the Experiment Advisor modules. If enabled, a report including information from selected Experiment Advisor Modules (i.e., on the Experiment Advisor tab in the Experiment Object) is generated and a link to the report is provided on the Generate tab in the Output window. Refer to GENERAL: Experiment Advisor  and the Experiment Advisor Tab section within GENERAL: Experiment Object  for information pertaining to use of the Experiment Advisor feature in E-Prime.
The Run Configuration settings permit the test session to execute in windowed, or non-full screen mode for testing and/or debugging purposes. Windowed mode facilitates the preview of an experiment, with the ability to start, pause, and stop the experiment, as well as the ability to observe variable, attribute, and script information within E-Run Experiment user interface window. The Run Configuration settings permit the user to select the size of the window in which to display the experiment (i.e., Display window), if electing to run in windowed mode, and whether the windows (Display window and E-Run Experiment user interface window) will be able to be resized. Refer to the GENERAL: Windowed Mode  documentation article for information pertaining to use of windowed mode and Display Device scaling options.
The Quick Start window provides a visual representation of the experiment structure, and permits experiment execution to begin from a specific starting point. Quick Start is useful as a testing or debugging tool to run a portion of an experiment without requiring completion of the entire experiment. Refer to GENERAL: Quick Start  for information pertaining to use of the Quick Start feature in E-Prime.
