help needed

I want opensesame to keep repeating a trial till the person makes a response. the trail would contain a hidden word masked by other word. The hidden word is to be identified by the participant and press a key as soon as they identify it. They will be asked to type the word after this. The reaction time from stimulus presentation till the word is typed in will be measured.
can you please help me figure out how to do this?


  • Hi Ravina,

    Could you clarify what you mean exactly? Do you really want to repeat the exact same trial sequence until the participant responds?

    Or do you want to present a block of trials, some of which contain a masked word, while others don't; and then on each trial allow participants to press a key to indicate that they saw a word; and if they do, a text input allows them to enter the word? (This would make more sense to me.)


    There's much bigger issues in the world, I know. But I first have to take care of the world I know.
