Will the RT be affected by network latency?

URL of experiment:

Description of the problem:I want to use the platform for IAT experiments, will network latency affect RT?

No, RT is measured based entirely on local computations and only transmitted to the server at the end. It might be affected by the performance of the participant’s computer or the other programs they have running, but Pavlovia basically just loads the entire experiment onto the participant computer, runs it, and only at the end transmits back the results. There is no reliance on network communication during the task itself.
