Hello,



I want to present two statements on the screen which belong together, i.e. any time a statement from stimulus list A is shown, the respective statement from stimulus list B should appear as well. I could already solve this issue with help of the /select = ....currentindex function and defining separate stim/stimB lists (each containing 24 statements).
I am now struggling the the randomization of the statement sequence: I want to counterbalance whether statement A is presented first and followed by the respective statement B, or whether statement B is presented first and followed by the respective statement A. I thought of using a counter, however, it seems that there are still some double trials because sometimes, the statement is drawn directly from the list, and sometimes only indirectly via the corresponding list.

How can I solve this problem and "exclude" also those statements which were only drawn via the /select function?

Any advice would be great!

Thank you in advance and kind regards,
L.

You should not need two lists or counters, one suffices. Consider this example, with two trials, one of which presents statement A first, the other presents statement B first.

<text a>
/ items = aitems
/ select = values.itemnumber
</text>

<text b>
/ items = bitems
/ select = values.itemnumber
</text>

<item aitems>
/ 1 = "A 01"
/ 2 = "A 02"
/ 3 = "A 03"
/ 4 = "A 04"
/ 5 = "A 05"
/ 6 = "A 06"
</item>

<item bitems>
/ 1 = "B 01"
/ 2 = "B 02"
/ 3 = "B 03"
/ 4 = "B 04"
/ 5 = "B 05"
/ 6 = "B 06"
</item>

<list allitemnumbers>
/ poolsize = 6
</list>

<trial ab>
/ ontrialbegin = [
    values.itemnumber = list.allitemnumbers.nextindex;
]
/ stimulustimes = [0=a; 2000=b]
/ validresponse = (57)
</trial>

<trial ba>
/ ontrialbegin = [
    values.itemnumber = list.allitemnumbers.nextindex;
]
/ stimulustimes = [0=b; 2000=a]
/ validresponse = (57)
</trial>

<block myblock>
/ trials = [1-6 = noreplace(ab, ba)]
</block>

<values>
/ itemnumber = 1
</values>
