Fresh new features for April:
Stimulus management and design improvements
- New Compound component groups allowing you to combine two or more
component groups into a single compound component. This allows a single
stimulus to contain a group or groups composed of two or more related components. Effectively, stimuli can now be composed in a heirarchy of compound components.
This may not mean much if you've never needed such a thing, but if you do find yourself needing multiple sets of related stimuli in the same trial,
you'll be thankful you can do such a thing :)
- All random stimulus composition strategies have a new counterpart, namely "recompose". In the past, a stimulus set was generated only once, and when called
upon again in a different trial block, was used again in it's original composition. Now recomposition is granular, meaning any stimulus group in any part of the hierarchy
in a stimulus set can be set to a number of different recomposition strategies when called by any trial block.
- Stimulus sets can now be individually
customized by each set of trials (only available on compound components). Partial re-composition of compound stimulus sets allows you to recompose a subset of
compound items isolated to this trial set only. This kind of re-composition strategy might be handy when using the same stimulus set for practice and test. For example,
a paired associate task where you're testing participants on their ability to recognize seen/unseen associations.
New range slider
New range slider question type providing a simulated analogue range slider. The
new slider has plenty of cusomizations available (including the ability to hide the handle).
