Self-Paced Reading/Judgment Task Experiment Help
I'm trying to create a self-paced reading task and I'm having a hard time trying to grasp the concepts and how to do it.
What I want to do is present the participants several passages of 2 sentences each, one sentence at a time.
The first sentence has a stereotype profession (female/neutral/masculine), and the second sentence is a continuation. The participants have to decide whether the continuation makes sense or not (so the continuation mentions either a woman or a man (feminine/masculine)).
The doctors were waiting for the blood results.
One of the men was famous in genetics.
I'm planning on presenting around 50 of these 2 sentenced passages, but as you can see, I have 2 Independent Variables (Stereotyped sentence (3 levels= female, neutral, masculine), and continuation (2 levels= feminine/masculine)
My DV would be the reaction times for each sentence and whether they identify the continuation as correct or not.
(I did look at the video tutorial and it was helpful in making me understand, but I still find it a bit confusing, perhaps because the stimuli is different)
