Hello everyone, I am a complete beginner to the world of Pavlovia so my apologies if I missed something but I am really stuck.
Here is what I want to do and I am wondering is the best way to approach this:
- Use Pavlovia Surveys to welcome participants from prolific (i.e. get their prolific ID & consent etc.)
- Assign a unique but simple subject ID (e.g. ABC123) that participants can type in somewhere else where they actually complete the experiment.
Is that possible within Surveys? How can I make sure that the ID is really unique? I know a way how do this in JATOS but no idea here.
My super complicated idea, which I currently don’t know how to implement myself is to create a custom webpage that take the prolific link e.g.
example.com?PROLIFIC_PID=123&STUDY_ID=456&SESSION_ID=789 and add another parameter like
participant that is chosen from a list that I provided and a value can only be chosen once. Then this
participant is added to the actual link to the survey but I guess this would be the JATOS way of things and needs a server, which seems overkill. There must be a simple option.
Edit: The only other non-technical solution would be to let participants choose themselves like the first letter of a person they know + the second letter in their name + the current minutes. Does anyone has experience with this? Especially while also respecting ethics rules with regard to handling personally identifiable information.
