    Hey there! 

    My name is Nicole Becker and I study and live in Mannheim, Germany. For my Bachelor's thesis I need to make actual research in the linguistic domain. Precisely, I need to test a lexical decision task and measure the reaction time of the participants in milliseconds. Would this be possible with the free plan of JotForm? 

    Best wishes,

    Nicole Becker

    Currently our form builder is providing a few timer widgets that can count down/up and send that value when the form is submitted. But these widgets neither have millisecond precision nor per-field time measuring capabilities.

    If that will fit your need though, you can create multiple pages and put time tracker widgets to each of this pages to measure elapsed time from when the responder started the form.

    To be able to implement a millisecond precision, per question response time tracking the only viable solution seem to add your own custom code to measure and keep response times. For this route you can download the source code of your form and write your own javascript code to handle this measurement.

    Thank you for contacting JotForm!

    Feel free to ask any further questions.
