I am finishing programming a recognition memory study where monetary values are paired with words. In total, the task has 8 blocks (1 block = study + test). Everything progresses through the task correctly, but the main issue right now is that the words presented during study and test are the same across all the blocks. So when it proceeds to the next block, a new set of old and new words aren’t presented from the stimulus list.
One idea I thought of, which is the reason for my post, is to see if there is a way to create lists for each block from the main stimulus list before the experiment starts. The main file I’m reading in with the word stimuli has about 1,400 words. Each block should have 80 words (40 at study and 40 additional words for distractors at test). If it is possible to make eight 80 word lists from the main stimulus set before the experiment starts, then I could just read those into each block so I wouldn’t have to change the layout of the task in builder.
Let me know how one would do this or if there is an easier way to achieve this. Also, let me know if you’d like to see the current code/builder layout I have.
Thanks in advance!
