Randomizing a Set of Questions using Inline-Script with the SAME focus point prior to each Question
I am trying to create an experiment with the following structure:
Structure of Experiment
12 questions of a certain type of content – randomized
12 questions of a different type of content – randomized
Prior to EACH question in BOTH set, I need a slide with a focus point ( the *) to be shown for 250 milliseconds. Each question should end when the participant presses one of the designated answer keys ("z" or "/").
This is my first time creating and experiment with OpenSesame, so I have tried several different things in hopes that I would find the answer, and I continuously come up short...primarily, the one issue I run into no matter what I do is that I cannot get the 12 questions to present themselves in random order.
When I finally figured out how to get the questions themselves to appear in random order (using shuffle in an inline-script), I ran into the problem of not being able to insert the focus point prior to each number. I cannot just add it to the item_list because then it will appear randomly and not necessarily prior to each question.
And I cannot go back to inserting a sequence into a loop because sequence items always appear in sequential order even if contained within a randomized loop.
Does anyone have any suggestions for fixing this problem?
