So I’me getting close to having my experiment working (it’s a bit epic) and I now need to think about what data to capture and how to write it to an output file.
I’ve had a look at the .csv file my experiment currently generates and it is bewildering. So much data. Is there a column for every single component? Why?
The only doco on this I am aware of for this stuff is the scant two paragraphs on page 17 of the manual that I have (version 21.1.2) - but I’m not sure where I got this manual from - or where to get a later version.
I note there is no link to a manual on this page: https://workshops.psychopy.org/teaching/index.html
I have done the intensive 3 day course and have used the method outlined in 1.7.5 Storing Custom Variables - which works - but I am still a bit unclear about the format of this output file. Furthermore I would VERY much like to make this file less verbose so that when I have run my experiment I don’t have to spend lots of time picking through the spreadsheet digging out the variables/data that I want.
In short - are there any additional resources or doco for how to best generate, manage and format the output files generated by an experiment.
Thanks for any help with this.
