Component groups are the building blocks for composing components. Component groups can be discrete (i.e. a singular group composed of only itself) or composed of other component groups (e.g. a counterbalanced group built from a number of discrete groups or a blended group built from a number of counterbalanced groups).
You can add component groups by clicking on New group and selecting from one of four types:
Compound: compound component group contains two or more component groups that need to be grouped. Groups may contain different types of items (image and text, or counterbalanced group and blended group, etc.).
Blended: blended component group contains two or more component groups that need to be blended. Groups may contain different types of items (e.g. image and text).
Counterbalanced: counterbalanced component group contains multiple component groups that need to be counterbalanced.
Manual: manual component group contains manually created stimuli from one or more component groups and can be composed using factors and levels.
Discrete: discrete component group contains a list of stimulus items and come in the following types:
WARNING: Adding a component group to an existing group will remove:
A component group can be removed by selecting it using the checkbox and clicking Delete in the toolbar above the table. You can also select and delete multiple component groups at once.
WARNING: Removing a component group will also remove:
Component groups can be reordered within their containing group by drag and drop.
A component group can be moved to another group within the stimulus set tree by drag and drop.
WARNING: Reparenting a component group will also remove:
