I am creating an experiment in which both single-key and string responses are used (see 1st attached file). I have read others’ posts on this topic, so I’ve made sure that both the single key and string responses are enabled only when correct, and that all of my events only allow correct responses.
The problem I’m having is that the string response field does not appear when called for. I have tried adjusting some of the various options for presentation of the preceding stimuli to no avail. I also tried creating a simpler experiment (2nd attached file) in which only string responses are allowed. In this experiment, the response field appears if I check “Show sting input’s response field…for all events,” but then I run into another problem when I run the experiment. In this case, the response field shows after the first item and proceeds to the next item upon clicking “Next” or pressing “Enter,” but on the second item, when I type in an answer and press “Enter,” the experiment freezes. Again, I tried fiddling with several options, but I can’t seem to get to the root of the problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
