Setting up a GARP experiment

Once you have finished entering prices and budgets for each page, click "Instructions". You will see the default instructions included in GARP as HTML code in an editable text box.

If you are satisfied with the default instructions, click "Update Parameter Set". Otherwise, make any changes you require, and save your parameter set. Your experiment setup is now complete. You can also click the "Preview" tab if you would like to test the experiment by seeing it as your subjects will.

You can now close the browser window containing the experiment setup. Return to the original browser window, containing the configuration setup, and click "Save". The experiment can now be started.
