Dear all,

I'm trying to create a task in which participants can view many different pictures and choose one picture when they decide to. This meant that I want them to be able to freely click "Back" to view the previous picture, and "Continue" to view the next picture. I have 110 pictures, and when participants decide which painting they want to choose, they can either continue to view other pictures or end the task. I have been able to achieve all the procedures I want except that when participants clicked on "Back", they were not shown the previous picture, rather it was a new, randomly chosen, picture.

Does anyone know how I can display the previous picture when participants click on "Back"?

Below are the script that I have right now:

<radiobuttons choose>
/ options = ("This painting has the highest price", "Continue viewing other paintings")
/ optionvalues = ("1", "0")
/ validresponse = ("1","0")
/ position = (35%, 65%)
</radiobuttons>

<radiobuttons ask>
/ options = ("Yes, I want to continue viewing other paintings", "No, I don't want to view more paintings")
/ optionvalues = ("1", "0")
/ position = (25%, 40%)
</radiobuttons>

<radiobuttons endask>
/ options = ("Show me other paintings", "End Task")
/ optionvalues = ("1", "0")
/ position = (35%, 65%)
</radiobuttons>

<surveypage init>

Won't work in the way you set this up. What you need to do is set up a _single_ <picture> element, with all the 110 images as its /items. Then, select a random item number at the start of each surveypage. In addition, you need to record the sequence of item numbers in a <list>. Then, when someone goes back, you need to retrieve the previous item number from that <list> instead of selecting a new, random item number.

The easier, but more verbose option would be to create a separate <surveypage> for _each_ image. Then just randomize the order of the surveypages.

Hi Dave,

Thanks so much for the solution. I actually tried using <list> before but I gave up on that way as I wasn't sure how I can record the sequence of item numbers in the <list> and retrieve the previous item number from the list when participants press the "back" button. How do I go about doing this?

Come to think of it, instead of recording the sequence as you go through the survey, I think it's actually easier to setup a random sequence at the start, and then just step through it (moving back and forth between item numbers). I.e. something like this:

<expt>
/ blocks = [1=setup_sequence; 2=mysurvey]
</expt>

// sets up a random sequence of item numbers
<block setup_sequence>
/ trials = [1-11 = seqtrial]
</block>

<trial seqtrial>
/ ontrialbegin = [
    list.itemnumber_sequence.appenditem(list.itemnumbers.nextindex);
]
/ trialduration = 0
</trial>

// there are 11 items in this example
<list itemnumbers>
/ poolsize = 11
</list>

<list itemnumber_sequence>
</list>

// step through the sequence moving back and forth according to the page number
<survey mysurvey>
/ pages = [1-11 = mypage]
</survey>

<surveypage mypage>
/ ontrialbegin = [
    values.itemnumber = list.itemnumber_sequence.item(survey.mysurvey.currentpagenumber)
]
/ stimulusframes = [1=mystimulus]
</surveypage>

<values>
/ itemnumber = 1
</values>

<text mystimulus>
/ items = mystimuli
/ select = values.itemnumber
</text>

<item mystimuli>
/ 1 = "a.jpg"
/ 2 = "b.jpg"
/ 3 = "c.jpg"
/ 4 = "d.jpg"
/ 5 = "e.jpg"
/ 6 = "f.jpg"
/ 7 = "g.jpg"
/ 8 = "h.jpg"
/ 9 = "j.jpg"
/ 10 = "k.jpg"
/ 11 = "l.jpg"
</item>

I'm trying to create a task in which participants can view many different pictures and choose one picture when they decide to. This meant that I want them to be able to freely click "Back" to view the previous picture, and "Continue" to view the next picture. I have 110 pictures, and when participants decide which painting they want to choose, they can either continue to view other pictures or end the task. I have been able to achieve all the procedures I want except that when participants clicked on "Back", they were not shown the previous picture, rather it was a new, randomly chosen, picture.

Does anyone know how I can display the previous picture when participants click on "Back"?

Below are the script that I have right now:

<radiobuttons choose>
/ options = ("This painting has the highest price", "Continue viewing other paintings")
/ optionvalues = ("1", "0")
/ validresponse = ("1","0")
/ position = (35%, 65%)
</radiobuttons>

<radiobuttons ask>
/ options = ("Yes, I want to continue viewing other paintings", "No, I don't want to view more paintings")
/ optionvalues = ("1", "0")
/ position = (25%, 40%)
</radiobuttons>

<radiobuttons endask>
/ options = ("Show me other paintings", "End Task")
/ optionvalues = ("1", "0")
/ position = (35%, 65%)
</radiobuttons>

<surveypage init>
/ stimulustimes = [1=blank]
/ response = noresponse
/ branch = [surveypage.choice]
/ recorddata = false
</surveypage>


<surveypage choice>
/stimulustimes = [1=noreplace (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27,28,29,30,31,32,33,34,35,36,37,38,39,40,41,42,43,44,45,46,47,48,49,

<survey test>

Will greatly appreciate any help on this matter! Thank you so much!

Won't work in the way you set this up. What you need to do is set up a _single_ <picture> element, with all the 110 images as its /items. Then, select a random item number at the start of each surveypage. In addition, you need to record the sequence of item numbers in a <list>. Then, when someone goes back, you need to retrieve the previous item number from that <list> instead of selecting a new, random item number.

The easier, but more verbose option would be to create a separate <surveypage> for _each_ image. Then just randomize the order of the surveypages.

Hi Dave,

Thanks so much for the solution. I actually tried using <list> before but I gave up on that way as I wasn't sure how I can record the sequence of item numbers in the <list> and retrieve the previous item number from the list when participants press the "back" button. How do I go about doing this?


Come to think of it, instead of recording the sequence as you go through the survey, I think it's actually easier to setup a random sequence at the start, and then just step through it (moving back and forth between item numbers). I.e. something like this:

<expt>
/ blocks = [1=setup_sequence; 2=mysurvey]
</expt>

// sets up a random sequence of item numbers
<block setup_sequence>
/ trials = [1-11 = seqtrial]
</block>

<trial seqtrial>
/ ontrialbegin = [
    list.itemnumber_sequence.appenditem(list.itemnumbers.nextindex);
]
/ trialduration = 0
</trial>

// there are 11 items in this example
<list itemnumbers>
/ poolsize = 11
</list>

<list itemnumber_sequence>
</list>

// step through the sequence moving back and forth according to the page number
<survey mysurvey>
/ pages = [1-11 = mypage]
</survey>

<surveypage mypage>
/ ontrialbegin = [
    values.itemnumber = list.itemnumber_sequence.item(survey.mysurvey.currentpagenumber)
]
/ stimulusframes = [1=mystimulus]
</surveypage>

<values>
/ itemnumber = 1
</values>

<text mystimulus>
/ items = mystimuli
/ select = values.itemnumber
</text>

<item mystimuli>
/ 1 = "a.jpg"
/ 2 = "b.jpg"
/ 3 = "c.jpg"
/ 4 = "d.jpg"
/ 5 = "e.jpg"
/ 6 = "f.jpg"
/ 7 = "g.jpg"
/ 8 = "h.jpg"
/ 9 = "j.jpg"
/ 10 = "k.jpg"
/ 11 = "l.jpg"
</item>


Hi Dave,

That works! You're amazing, thank you so much!

However, could you also show me how you would record the sequence through the survey and retrieve the sequence number from <list>? I'm trying to see if there's any way to create this study without using radiobuttons (or survey elements) because it will be easier for participants to make a choice and navigate with just using the keyboard.
