PsychoPy version: 3.2.3
Standard Standalone?: Yes
Problem: Seemingly random numbers appear across hundreds of rows in the data output files during the testing block of my study. This happens fairly rarely (2/33 participants so far) and is not consistent with a particular condition or list in the experiment.
Attached is a copy of both what the CSV output typically looks like (CORRECT_DATAOUTPUT.csv) and a copy of when the random numbers appear (WRONG_DATAOUTPUT.csv).
What did you try to make it work?: I tried looking through the psychopy output script to identify any issues that arise during these rare cases. No error codes are present.
(1) Why do these seemingly random numbers appear?
(2) In the CVS data output files, column DJ indicates the participants’ answers in the test block. Can I still use the data from the participants where the random numbers appear (do the random numbers across rows 80-82 mess with the order of the participant answers? All 12 answers are there but the random numbers pushes one answer out of this DJ column it should be in.)?
Thank you in advance for any help and guidance! I can easily share more details of the experiment I created using the builder if needed as well.
