Cometrics is a Microsoft Windows compatible clinical tool for the collection and recording of frequency- and duration-based target behaviors, physiological signals, and video data. This software package is designed to record in-vivo observational and physiological data. In addition, we have included features that allow observers to capture video from real-time camera feeds and import saved video for retroactive data collection. By using Microsoft Excel-based spreadsheets, also called keystroke files, assessment and treatment sessions are exported into a single document using the click of a button. Integrated interobserver agreement metrics allow comparisons across primary and reliability observers, with the output exported into a spreadsheet for easy reference. All file system interactions are handled by the user interface, so files and folders are created and managed without manual intervention. This software is available free-of-charge through the Microsoft Store for Windows 10 and 11 and the source code is publicly available on GitHub.
