I am working on an experiment where participants are to respond to a test image that has 5 figures presented on the screen. On the left side, the target figure is presented. On the right side, 4 figures are presented where TWO correctly correspond to the target image. The goal is to have participants correctly answer which 2 images correspond to the given target image. The figures are listed 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 respectively.
The images are organized in an Excel file where CorrANS1 and CorrANS2 are identified. Column 1 for the first image, listing first correct response, and column 2 listing the correct 2nd response for the first image. The issue is that for every answer, the reversed presentation is technically considered correct. For example, for the first stimulus, a response of 1 and 3 is correct, as well as 3 and 1.
Attached are images of what my routine currently looks like and variable names.
I am looking for assistance on how to include code to allow reversed responses to be also considered correct with notice in the excel .csv data file.
I separated each stimulus response as one routine in order to use the Forced end routine function to obtain the correct answer. In the correct answer field, I was able to insert $CorrAns1 OR $CorrANS2 although the data file listed all keys in .corr as correct (indicated with ‘1’).
I have tried various custom codes in order to tailor it to my project needs although all seem to run into errors. If there may be a better suggestion in how to best analyze/present my given stimulus, please do share.
Many thanks in advance!
