I am trying to set up a PsychoPy experiment, first time all by myself.
Unfortunately, I am a total beginner when it comes to Python and programming.
Good thing is, I already have a working experiment template from a previous pilot study which I now need to change to my needs.
Major thing which needs to be included is: Participants should randomly be assigned to one of four different groups. The experiment consists of two phases: training phase and generalisation phase. Thus, when a participant was assigned to group 1 in the training phase, they have to be assigned to the same group in the generalisation phase.
I’ve created the files I need (excel & folder with pictures) for each group and each phase: so I have for example the files for TrainingG1 (group 1) containing the TrainingG1 excel file and the TrainingG1 zip-folder with the PNG files. Same goes for TrainingG2-4 and GeneralisationG1-4.
I know how to set up the experiment with Training & Generalisation phase for one group, but how can I add a “junction” so to say where the participants are randomly assigned one way (either group1, group2, group3, group4)?
I would really appreciate your help!
