I am currently working on a rating scale where my lab has choices that change after each trial. Everything is working smoothly except for the fact that the text is so long some of the words are overlapping. When I started writing the experiment, I was using short notes such as cat1,cat2,cat3,cat4, but now that the categories have been determined, the length is creating a problem.
Aside from shortening the choice (which would make the experiment (for the participant) more difficult), what would you all consider doing? Is this something that has been asked already?
An example of the words being shown would be “Chocolate Factory”, “University”,“Library”, “Cafe”.
I should mention that I’ve already got some code in here to make the rating table move, so I am not sure if this belongs in the coder or builder section.
