ODLog is an easy-to-use application for the accurate timing and recording of observational data. ODLog is typically used by scientists for naturalistic field observation studies, animal behavior experiments, psychology experiments. Although ODLog was primarily designed for researchers working in the behavioral sciences, it can also be used in any applications involving accurate manual scoring of live or videotaped observational data. ODLog is currently in use by researchers in experiments involving the manual observation of infant, adult, and animal behavior. ODLog can be used for data collection in studies using object recognition, social interaction, light-dark emergence, mazes, face preference, peer interaction, and much more. Data are stored in text format and can easily be imported into any spreadsheet or statistical package for analysis.
Version 2.3 redesigns user interface, supports up to 12 buttons to simultaneously score 12 different behaviors, and improves timing accuracy.
