Correct Response Not Stored - All 0s in Correct Answer Columns in Excel

Dear all,

I am currently starting an experiment with the Builder interface, where even if the correct answer is given, all the values in the Correct Answer Column in the output Excel file are 0. A week ago, I did not have this problem.

I installed the most recent version of Psychopy as of today in case there was a bug, but it has not corrected it.

I was wondering if somebody could help me out. I have attached the .psyexp and the .py files here.

I do not think it is related, but I also get this notification after I run the experiment, and it would be helpful to know if it’s having an effect:

Running: /Users/aneicardoisasa/Desktop/langexperiment/

pyo version 0.8.6 (uses single precision)
8.2300 ERROR Requested audio device ‘auto’ that is not available on this hardware. The ‘audioDevice’ preference should be one of [u’Built-in Output’]

I am a newbie with Psychopy so any help is appreciated! :grinning:

I get that error message every time I run anything in PsychoPy, so it’s hard to say if that has much to do with anything.

If it’s a key response, do you ask it to save all keys (instead of first or last)? Because correct key response doesn’t work for me in that situation.

Hey! That is good to know. I ask it to save the first key only. I’ll see if it works with the other options!


A common reason for correct responses showing up as incorrect is that you’ve written corrAns rather than $corrAns in the keyboard parameters. I haven’t gone through your experiment yet to see if you’ve done that, but it’s a common error.

Dear Jon,

I have not, as each routine is independent from the other and I will not be using an Excel file with conditions. Thank you for the suggestion, though!
