I have a list of 96 prime-target pairs for lexical decision. Presenting these in a random order is no problem at all, but the poor participants are bombarded with these things and I don’t want them to get fatigued. Hence I would like to present 3 x 32 prime-target pairs separated by breaks.
I can get PsychoPy to present 3 x 32 trials with breaks in between BUT there is a distinct possibility that the same prime-target pair may be presented in more than one block, with the result that some trials appear more than once while others do not appear at all. In essence what I want to achieve is the following:
Block 1: randomly select any 32 from 96 trials and present them. After the 32nd trial, give the participant a break
Block 2: randomly select any 32 from the 64 trials that haven’t been used so far and present them. Then give the participant another break
Block 3: present the remaining 32 trials in a random order. End.
I am new to PsychoPy (though for the most part I have found it very accessible and intuitive, so thank you!) and I am not familiar with coding in Python either. I apologise if this is a really simple fix and I’m just being silly.
Thanks in advance for any help you can offer
