Hello again, you might remember me as I asked something on the forum a week ago, and you guys helped me a lot (thanks again!).
So I have a new issue which apparently is quite common but I couldn’t find a satisfactory answer (especially since I know nothing of coding).
When running my experiment online, data is not saved, I only get an empty excel spread sheet and the experiment is considered as aborted by pavlovia even though I get the green “thank you for your patience” message.
I read that such data as stimuli start time is not saved online but is locally, and I that I should add a code component, but since I am a noob in coding, I don’t know what to write in it and where in my flow it should be added.
The only data I need is which key is pressed, and when.
the link to the experiment does not help. Either provide the link to the repository or sow us where and how you record key-presses. I assume that you find RTs and key-presses when running locally, don’t you.
My bad, here’s the link to my repository: Sign in · GitLab
Indeed, I get exploitable data when I run the experiment locally, but online, I get an excel file that looks nothing like I wish it would, as you can see on the screenshot below:
The reaction times you mention come from instructions (there is a third one later in the flow but apparently it’s not appearing on the excel file). I expected two other reaction times, which stem from two loops (PracticeTrialLoop and MainTrialLoop), as well as which box was clicked (my inputs are buttons).
The whole point is that I want them to quit the experiment so that their session is marked as completed and not aborted. Because right now, my last routine is a Thank you message, but there’s no way for people to quit the experiment without pressing escape (or I guess close the window but from what I’ve experienced data won’t be generated).
