Description of the problem: I have a loop that is set to run for 1 minute and then break. During this loop, there are two routines: one where participants use a mouse to click on valid text options to match a target, and another routine that shows feedback for 2 seconds. I have the total number of repetitions set to 180 for the loop, since participants would have to respond ridiculous fast in order to go through all the trials (and testing never came close to that number of trials). However, I had one participant who on the last run of this loop, seemingly completed about 10 trials normally, but then somehow completed all possible trials for that loop. However, there is no mouse click data for what option was clicked on, if they were correct, etc. The time between trials are on a scale of tenths of a second, so it seems as though the feedback routine wasn’t even displayed.
The four previous iterations of this loop all look normal, as does the rest of the participant’s data. This makes me think there was some kind of issue on that last loop or with the mouse response. I have data from 23 participants and only noticed this in one data set. Has anyone else had this problem or something similar? Is there a solution, or does this seem like a one time glitch?
