I am new to psychopy, and easily confused. I feel that this is a straightforward problem that is oddly difficult for me to achieve, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
What are you trying to achieve?: Create random pairs (the pairings must be random) of 2 lists, appearing simultaneously on the screen.
What did you try to make it work?: Googled and googled, and I am confused. So far, I’ve got one condition file with two columns: Column 1 contains images (filepaths). Column 2 contains words (text).The words are meant to appear on the same screen as the image, with random pairs of columns 1 and 2 generated each time without repetition.
example of my conditions file (condFile.xlsx):
I do not want image c.jpg to appear with “confused” every time.
I created an image stim and text stim in the same routine, referring to $imagePath and $word. I then put a loop around it referring to condFile.xlsx and set it to random.
What specifically went wrong when you tried that?: Rows are locked, and the pairs generated from column 1 and 2 are the same each time.
I feel like I’m missing something big here. Thanks in advance.
