TextLine with Comprehension Questions Paradigm

Required Experiment Builder Version: 1.4.71 or higher
EyeLink Required: Yes
Type: Complete Example
Difficulty Level: Easy

This example illustrates:
  • How to use the Randomization Setting to incorporate practice trials and perform run-time randomization
  • How to use Conditional nodes to display a comprehension question on only a select subset of trials
  • How to collect button response information (button pressed, RT calculation, and response accuracy evaluation)
Description:

This example is modified after the TEXTLINE example. In this version, participants will be displayed one sentence. They'll need to press a button to after reading it. In some of the trials, a further question will be displayed. Press button 1 or 2 to make a response. After finishing a recording session, click on the EDF file to view the eye data. The RT and comprehension button response will be displayed by clicking on "Analysis -> Trial Variable Value Editor".

This example runs 3 blocks. The first (practice) block contains 3 trials; the second and third (experiment) blocks contain 5 trials each.

**Additional detailed information about the project is given in the notes section for most nodes. To see notes for a given node, either mouse over that node or click on it to display the notes window. If the notes window is not visible, go to the "View" drop down menu in Experiment Builder, select "Properties", and check "Note".

NOTE: Please see our Implementing Text / Reading Experiments in Experiment Builder Webinar for more details of displaying text and creating Interest Areas for reading experiments.

Instructions:
  1. Download the TextLine_Question.ebz example from this message.
  2. Launch the Experiment Builder application.
  3. Unpack the TextLine_Question.ebz file to a location on your Experiment Builder PC with "File -> Unpack".
  4. Open the project in Experiment Builder.
  5. Deploy the project to a new folder.
  6. Run the TextLine_Question.exe from the deployed directory.

Recycling Trials with Incorrect Responses
 
Required Experiment Builder Version: 1.10.165 or higher
EyeLink Required: Yes
Type: Complete Example
Difficulty Level: Easy

This example illustrates:
  • How to use the Randomization Setting to incorporate practice trials and perform run-time randomization
  • How to use Conditional nodes to display a comprehension question on only a select subset of trials
  • How to collect button response information (button pressed, RT calculation, and response accuracy evaluation)
  • How to use the Recycle Data Line action node to repeat trials with incorrect responses
Description:

This example is modified after the TextLine with Comprehension Questions example (see post above). In this version, participants will be displayed one sentence. They'll need to press a button to after reading it. In some of the trials, a further question will be displayed. Press button 1 or 2 to make a response. Trials in which the participant fails to make a correct response will be repeated using the Recycle Data Line action.

This example runs 3 blocks. The first (practice) block contains 3 trials; the second and third blocks contain 5 trials each.

**Additional detailed information about the project is given in the notes section for most nodes. To see notes for a given node, either mouse over that node or click on it to display the notes window. If the notes window is not visible, go to the "View" drop down menu in Experiment Builder, select "Properties", and check "Note".
