I have browsed the forums in great depth looking for the knowledge I seek regarding d scores, so please rest assured that I made sure this question wasn't answered elsewhere before I posted (I think)...
I am running an edited version of the single target IAT template posted on the website, with the only major change to the script being a shift from 8 to 4 items. I am a total IAT newbie - though after browsing these forum posts I now understand what the D score is, how is computed etc. My understanding is that the column labeled "expressions.d" should be reporting a total D score for each participant - I can't find it! I see d scores for each target/attribute, but no big daddy grand master D (though it is reported to each participant on the screen after they finish the task). could you please help me figure out where this D is being recorded in the .dat file? here is my script for your perusal...
hi again - yes, i see a list of numbers in that column (and yes i have opened them in excel to see them all nice and orderly). it looks to me (and again i don't know what i am doing) like each of the numbers in that column is associated with a particular word? or is this just the running calculation of D, so the last number in the column is in fact the "total" d, so to speak?
Precisely. This is also covered in the thread I linked in my previous reply.
ok - thanks for the clarification (and isn't it wonderful that everything is working as it should?)
Yep, that's nice for a change.
