Conditional branching Experiment, Posted October 24th, 2011 #1
I am building a conditional branching program using Superlab 4.5. I want to present participants with the options of choosing from two different metals on each trial, say gold and diamond on trial 1. Depending on their response, by pressing either the g or the d key, a different trial will be presented. For example, if participants chose gold, they will then be presented with a choice of diamond or titanium, whereas if they chose silver in the first trial, they will be presented with the options aluminium or copper as the next trial, and so on. Please find attached what I've done so far. Any comments are welcome. I have based what I have done so far on the demo Letters and Numbers as I think it is similar to what I want to do for my experiment. At the momebt, my problem is that I can't get the right block to be presented after the designated response. Not sure where I went wrong.

Any help is much appreciatedGold or Silver.sl4

How many levels in the decision tree do you plan on going?

About 4-5 levels.

Currently SuperLab can only go to 2-3 levels.

Hi Monika,

Say I'd like to build a conditional branching experiment involving 3 levels, which, according to you is the maximum number of levels possible in Superlab, how would I go about setting it up? I have attached what I've done so far with this experiment. Can you please tell me where I went wrong and why I can't get the appropriate trial to be presented based on participants' response?

Hi,

I did not see your experiment attached. Can you attach it as an Experiment Package? We will be attending the Psychonomics Annual Meeting in Seattle for the rest of the week. I will be able to look over your experiment early next week.

Thank you. As I was looking into this some more I realized the current SuperLab version can only achieve 2 levels. I apologize for speaking out too soon.

Hi Monika,
That's fine, but can you please tell me where I went wrong with the experiment, i.e., why I can't get the program to go to the desired outcome using the macros in the block editor.

Thanks

Your macro is only selected for the first block, and not the second and third. Is this what you intended?
