Hello, I want to reshow my instruction pages if participants fail the instructional check questions. However, I am happy problems looping back to the beginning of the trial to show the instructions. My "branch" back to the beginning of the does not work at all the program just continues to the following trials. It's highly likely that I have just coded the "branch" wrong. I have included my code below and 
Specifically: the code in INSTRUCTION COMPREHENSION CHECK PART 1: <surveypage HapInstrCompQ> 
INSTRUCTION COMPREHENSION CHECK PART 2: <surveypage FamInstrCompQ>
Thank you for your help.

A <surveypage> is a kind of <trial>. A <trial> cannot /branch to a <block>. Branches have to be at the same level, i.e. if you need to branch to a block, the branch belongs at the <block> level. Put the instructions trials in their own block, and then you can repeat that block as needed per a /branch in that block.

Hello, I want to reshow my instruction pages if participants fail the instructional check questions. However, I am happy problems looping back to the beginning of the trial to show the instructions. My "branch" back to the beginning of the does not work at all the program just continues to the following trials. It's highly likely that I have just coded the "branch" wrong. I have included my code below and 
Specifically: the code in INSTRUCTION COMPREHENSION CHECK PART 1: <surveypage HapInstrCompQ> 
INSTRUCTION COMPREHENSION CHECK PART 2: <surveypage FamInstrCompQ>
Thank you for your help.

I'm confused. This has nothing to do with the branching. You can use whatever question format(s) you feel most comfortable with.

Thanks for the quick reply, I have tried your suggested code, but unfortunately if participants get an instructional check question wrong it starts the instructions for the following block (I.e., familiarity block). Presumably, because the instructions are set up in a sequential order:

<item Instructions>
/ 1 = "1 Welcome.png"
/ 2 = "2 BackgroundInfo.png"
/ 3 = "3 HapInstr1.png"
/ 4 = "4 HapInstr2.png"

Use a value then for selection and set it as needed. You already have that value in your code, so I'm puzzled why you don't use it.

I am still really struggling with this, as now I am getting "/ 2 = "2 BackgroundInfo.png"" displayed three times as opposed to: 
/ 2 = "2 BackgroundInfo.png"
/ 3 = "3 HapInstr1.png"
/ 4 = "4 HapInstr2.png"
being displayed once during the Happiness block.

That's because for completely unclear reasons you changed the instructions trial. This is your code now.

<trial Instructions>
/ stimulusframes = [1 = InstructionsDisplay, ContinueButton]
/ inputdevice = mouse
/ validresponse = (ContinueButton)
/ posttrialpause = parameters.ISI
</trial>

This was your original code, in your first post here: https://www.millisecond.com/forums/FindPost30350.aspx

<trial Instructions>
/ stimulusframes = [1 = InstructionsDisplay, ContinueButton]
/ ontrialbegin = [values.instructnum += 1]
/ inputdevice = mouse
/ validresponse = (ContinueButton)
/ posttrialpause = parameters.ISI
</trial>

The latter is almost correct, though you should either move that to /ontrialend or -- better yet -- leave it /ontrialbegin but do

<block HappinessInstructions>
/ onblockbegin = [values.instructnum = 1; values.trialCount = 0; values.makeHappiness = 1]
/ trials = [1-3 = Instructions; 4 = HapInstrCompQ]
/ branch = [if (radiobuttons.HapCompCheck1.response != "Level of Happiness" || radiobuttons.HapCompCheck2.response != "Faces"
  || radiobuttons.HapCompCheck3.response != "4 seconds") block.HappinessInstructions]
</block>

<block FamiliarityInstructions>
/ onblockbegin = [values.instructnum = 4; values.trialCount = 0; values.makeFams = 1]
/ trials = [1-2 = Instructions; 3 = FamInstrCompQ]
/ branch = [if (radiobuttons.FamCompCheck1.response != "Level of Familiarity" || radiobuttons.FamCompCheck2.response != "Faces"
  || radiobuttons.FamCompCheck3.response != "5 seconds") block.FamiliarityInstructions]
</block>

P.S.: I know I am repeating myself, but please whenever you need to share code that requires external files to actually run, provide those files.
