## Limit experiment and randomly choose trials

##### Limit experiment and randomly choose trials
 Author Message Tamara Group: Forum Members Posts: 9, Visits: 189 Dear Inquisit-Team,We need a little help with our experiment. In our experiment, there are trials with only one sentence and trials with one sentence and an interruption (i.e. another text stimulus). During the trial, they must decide if the sentence is right or wrong. Alltogether we have 100 sentences and 25 interruption. Inquisit choose randomly when and for which sentence it will show additionaly the interruption. At the end, participant will see for sure 5 sentences without interruption and then 95 sentences of which 25 have randomly an interruptionSo far, that’s what we have. Now we want to limit the time of the experiment. So that every participant will have 3 minutes to solve the task but no matter how many sentences they will solve, during the 3 minutes they will definitily see 25 freely choosen task with an interruption (i.e. trial.stoerung). Is that possible?Thank you very much in advance. If you have any questions, just let me know.If it helps, here are the mainparts of the experiment:/ preinstructions = (Test)/ trials = [1 = Countdown; 2 - 6 = trial.beginn; 7-101 = list.auswahl]/ ontrialbegin = [values.itemnummer=counter.testitems.selectedvalue]/ stimulustimes = [0=blankscreen; 500=fixation; 700=blankscreen, stimulus, d_label, k_label]/ validresponse = (32, 37)/ responsetime = 700/ iscorrectresponse = [trial.test.response==expressions.korrektetaste]/ ontrialbegin = [values.itemnummer=counter.testitems.selectedvalue]/ stimulustimes = [0=blankscreen; 500=fixation; 700=blankscreen, stimulus, d_label, k_label]/ validresponse = (32, 37)/ responsetime = 700/ iscorrectresponse = [trial.test.response==expressions.korrektetaste]/ ontrialbegin = [values.itemnummer=counter.testitems.selectedvalue]/ ontrialend = [values.textnachricht = counter.nachrichten.selectedvalue; values.marker_icon = picture.icon.currentitemnumber]/ stimulustimes = [0=blankscreen, vsize, hsize, vposition, hposition; 500=fixation; 700=blankscreen, stimulus, d_label, k_label; 750=rahmen, Nachrichten, extrapic, textfeld, icon]/ validresponse = (32, 37)/ responsetime = 700/ iscorrectresponse = [trial.test.response==expressions.korrektetaste]/ items = [trial.test; trial.stoerung]/ itemprobabilities = [0.7368; 0.2632]/ poolsize = 95/ selectionmode = random Dave posted 8 Months Ago ANSWER Group: Administrators Posts: 10K, Visits: 64K +x Tamara - 5/5/2020Dear Inquisit-Team,We need a little help with our experiment.

I don't understand the second part of the question./ preinstructions = (Test)/ trials = [1 = Countdown; 2 - 6 = trial.beginn; 7-101 = list.auswahl]/ timeout = 180000
