Pausing an experiment

Hello everybody,

I am working on an experiment designed for kids as young as three. I want to be able to pause the experiment at any point the child asks for a break and resume the experiment where I paused (it is not a reaction time experiment). How can I do that?



You can press the escape key when the participant wants to stop. When resuming, SuperLab will repeat the trial that was in progress.

Hello There,

I’m still stuck with trying to pause an experiment. The thing I want is that even when I pause in the middle of a trail, I don’t want to start over the whole trail again.

Even when I press escape, it stops and carries out the whole block right from the first trial.

Thanks a lot for your help,


Do you have most of your events attached to a single trial?
