I am using PsychoPy to present a questionnaire to my participants. More specifically, they do half a questionnaire with randomly selected items before a session in a different program, and they do the remaining items afterward.
With Python, it was reasonably straight forward to generate these lists beforehand, so now I have files such as ‘questionnaireA20.csv’ and questionnaireB20.csv’, where 20 is the participant number. I now have a version A and B of the .psyexp file, and let’s take the A-file as an example. The idea is that the A-file imports the A-list belonging to the participant number.
I attempted to achieve this by using the following code at “Begin Experiment”:
Which does not return an error and the print command reads exactly what I would expect it to.
However, the problem seems to lie with the other elements in the flow (as the Conditions field in Properties is now empty). On the screen, I want to present text as defined by a column in the conditions file, so I call it with
$TextLeft in the builder, which is one of the headers.
This results in a NameError, because the name ‘TextLeft’ is allegedly not defined. And part of me can see how that is obvious, but not obvious enough to solve it.
Is there a way to circumvent it?
(I am currently using the Python 3 version even though I have more experience with 2.7. But that’s not a big deal, just takes a little longer with sorting the grammar/syntax). I’m not afraid of using code but I would like to be able to keep it all in the Builder because of reasons.
Many thanks in advance!
