OS (e.g. Win10): Win7
PsychoPy version (e.g. 1.84.x): v1.83.04 (I’m using the old version because my other experiments aren’t compatible with the new version and I haven’t had a chance to de-bug it)
What are you trying to achieve?:
In the experiment I need to present 99 sentences (recorded as audio clips), and pair each sentence randomly with one of three cues (i.e., phonology §, semantic (S), tap (T)). The cue is actually a specific word/task that corresponds to that sentence. For example, the sentence “The man ate the carrot” can be cued by the word ‘parrot’ in the P condition, ‘food’ in the S condition, or they’ll be asked to do a tapping task in the T condition.
The goal is to counterbalance assignments of sentences to the P, S, or T conditions.
For example, for participant 1, sent 1 with P, sent 2 with S, sent 3 with T etc. But participant 2 might get sent 1 with S, sent 2 with T, sent 3 with P etc.
Unfortunately, I don’t have a sophisticated way of doing this. Currently, I’ve pseudorandomized the sentences into 3 sets of 33 sentences, one set for each cue. Further, I’ve randomized the sets and cues so that they can be counterbalanced. (This runs perfectly)
I’ve tried to apply this approach, albeit at a smaller scale using a subset of the sentences (Randomization of three lists simultanously) but the problem was that the sentences repeat and the specific cues do not correspond to the specific sentence.
Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!!
