I have an experiment I am writing in builder. I have one outer loop that wraps round the whole experiment, working through a spreadsheet, picking the conditions out in random order. The conditions in this excel sheet then re-direct to other spreadsheets (eg. animation1.csv) that contain all the details for a short screen animation to run ( this runs in a nested loop). It then moves out of the first nested loop into a new routine collecting participant responses (still inside the main outer loop). I want to ask participants different questions, depending on what animation clip they have seen.
Can anyone help with an idea for a way to get the participant response loop to pick up on the animation condition that has been randomly selected in the outer loop, so that it asks the appropriate question?
I tried putting a new column in the spreadsheet that lists all the conditions called ‘prompt’ and then writing questions in there, then putting $prompt in the text section of the participant response routine, but it did not work.
Thanks for your help,
