Web Data files

Dear Inquisit,

  I recently ran an experiment consisting of 2 IATs. At first I ran one of 3 IATs then reduced the task to 2 IATs and renamed the files. When I look at the web data files I don't see the new script names, only the old ones. In addition, not all of them have both raw and summary data. I'm unsure if the sets of data I collected are usable. 

This is the batch file that I should be using: 

<batch>
/ file = "GrpGAffectIAT.iqx"
/ file = "DepressionBriefIAT.iqx"
/ subjects = (1 of 4)
/ groupassignment = groupnumber
</batch>

<batch>
/ file = "GrpGAffectIAT.iqx"
/ file = "DepressionBriefIAT.iqx"
/ subjects = (2 of 4)
/ groupassignment = groupnumber
</batch>

<batch>
/ file = "GrpTAffectIAT.iqx"
/ file = "DepressionBriefIAT.iqx"
/ subjects = (3 of 4)
/ groupassignment = groupnumber
</batch>

<batch>
/ file = "GrpTAffectIAT.iqx"
/ file = "DepressionBriefIAT.iqx"
/ subjects = (4 of 4)
/ groupassignment = groupnumber


The file names reflect the names of the scripts.

However, my data files are named after the older script files that I had previously deleted.

Thank you.

As far as I can tell, the data files are named just as you specified them to be named in your scripts' <data> and <summarydata> elements:

#1: From GrpGAffectIAT.iqx:

<data>
/file = "GoodGuyaneseIAT_rawdata.iqdat"
...
</data>
...
<summarydata >
/file = "GoodGuyaneseIAT_summary.iqdat"
...
</summarydata>

#2: From GrpTAffectIAT.iqx

<data>
/file = "IngroupTrinidadianIAT_rawdata.iqdat"
...
</data>
...
<summarydata >
/file = "GoodTrinidadianIAT_summary.iqdat"
...
</summarydata>

NOTE THE MISMATCH IN THE ABOVE

#3: From DepressionBriefIAT.iqx

<data>
/file = "DepressionBriefIAT_rawdata.iqdat"
...
</data>
...
<summarydata >
/file = "DepressionBriefIAT_summary.iqdat"
...
</summarydata>

You can also see this by reviewing the logs https://www.millisecond.com/myaccount/logs/participants.aspx?webscriptid=10528&webscriptname=IATbatch which include the names of the data files that were uploaded.
