Several questions regarding Open Sesame experiment user interface
I'm currently working on my Master Project and I have to create an experiment. Since I have some previous knowledge of Open Sesame, I want to use that. However I'm not quite sure if the things I want to implement are possible in Open Sesame. Therefore I first want to check here if these things are even possible before fully focussing on implementation.
The first question I have is if it is possible to have a second screen or pop up with a scroll bar in it. In my experiment participants have to rate 3 stimuli for 16 trials and they should be able to see the previous ratings as well. Since putting that all on one screen is a lot of information, I thought being able to scroll through that screen would be a solution. Is having a seperate screen or a scroll function an option in Open Sesame? If not would there be some sort of alternative way in which I could present this information clearly to the participant?
The second question is about widgets. Can widgets be locked in any way, such that they are still on the screen but they cannot be interacted with anymore? Say that a participant put in a score of 3, 4 and 5 for the three stimuli at trial 10. Now that they go to trial 11 I want them to be able to still see the 3, 4 and 5, but they shouldnt be able to change their answer anymore, nor should they be able to fill in answers from trial 12 already. I was thinking of using sliders as widgets (I've tried out the implementation mentioned on this forum and with a few adjustments I think I could make them work), so i'd like to keep the sliders on screen instead of just a number. So a slider on the value 4 instead of just the number 4, as that will be most similar to what participants have to fill in in the next trial.
Thanks in advance for any replies, and if anything is still unclear I will gladly provide more information!
