I am new to Inquisit and so I have been trying to create a script by changing some of the sample scripts to fit my experiment instead of starting from scratch. However there is not a script that is quite like what I am trying to do and I keep getting error messages.
Here is what I am trying to do:
I want an IAT with two attributes and two targets, both with mixed picture and text stimuli. The issue seems to be with creating targets with both picture and text stimuli, I haven't seen any samples with this in them.
Here is some of the script for the stimuli:
/1 = "Democrats"
/1 = "Liberal"
/2 = "Left Wing"
/3 = "Democrat"
/1 = "dem-donkey.gif"
/1 = "Republicans"
/1 = "Conservative"
/2 = "Right Wing"
/3 = "Republican"
/1 = "American"
/ 1 = "USA"
/ 2 = "America"
/ 1 = "us-flag.jpg"
/ 2 = "us-map.jpg"
/1 = "Foreign"
/ 1 = "UK"
/ 2 = "Foreign"
/ 1 = "fo-flag.gif"
/ 2 = "fo-map.png"
Here are the error messages I have been getting:
text.targetAText items Could not locate item 'targetA'.
text.targetBText items Could not locate item 'targetA'.
trial.targetAleft stimulusframes Could not locate element 'targetA'.
I have tried editing some of the script in the trials and blocks, I feel like it is somewhere in there that I need to change some more stuff.
Does anyone with some more experience with inquisit have some ideas on what I am doing wrong/what I need to do to allow it let me have two targets with mixed picture and text stimuli?
Thanks so much for your help!! It is greatly appreciated!!
