Hi all, 

This may be a simple question.

I am new to Inquisit. I am looking to modify a WM task (Automated OSPAN, retrieved here: https://www.millisecond.com/download/library/ospan/)

All I need to do is insert additional "slides" of text at the beginning of the task, and in instructions that appear after each block of trials. 

It is simple to edit the instructions at the beginning, but what subsequent changes must I make to the rest of the code in order to ensure that the new slides are incorporated and presented in the correct order?

Thank you!

Mark

All the instructions are in <item instructions>, in the order they are supposed to appear during the task. Insert your additional "slide texts" there, in the positions where you need them to occur.

The adjust the number of "instructions" trials run in the respective <block>s accordingly.

<block InstrPracLetter>
/ trials = [1-3=instructions]
/ recorddata = false
</block>

For example, the letter practice instructions block displays three slides by default. If you were to insert a fourth one, change it to

<block InstrPracLetter>
/ trials = [1-4=instructions]
/ recorddata = false
</block>

The remaining instructions blocks work the same:

<block InstrPracMath>
/ trials = [1-3=instructions]
/ recorddata = false
</block>

<block InstrPracBoth>
/ trials = [1-3=instructions]
/ recorddata = false
</block>

<block InstrTestBoth>
/ trials = [1=instructions]
/ recorddata = false
</block>

<block InstrFinal>
/ trials = [1=instructions; 2=score_report]
/ recorddata = false
</block>
