I have an experiment with different conditions, where depending on the condition participants will either see a trial, or will skip the trial.
To give you one example, if participants are in condition
4, they will only see the two first trials and then the last one (they will skip 9 trials). To implement this, I added at the beginning of the trial the following code component:
if cond == 4 and (1 < trials_1.thisRepN < 11): #trials 2 to 10 skipped continueRoutine = False
This is working. However, skipping trial 2 to 10 means that the experiment is now running much slower when going from trial 1 to 11. It takes aprox 2-3 secs for the screen to change from trial 1 to trial 11.
My question is: is there a way of skipping specific trials and avoid this issue, by making the transition from trial 1 to trial 11 faster?
