Item pool confusion
Hey everyone :)
I am new with openSesame and very thankful for this great openSource program and Chapeau! I am very impressed by the program.
I am trying to build an experiment and I am stuck with 2 concrete questions: The experiment itself is straight forward. People simply have to rate statements. Now I built a list with, lets say 300 statements within 3 categorieys (100 each). I divided these statments in 10 blocks. In the first block I would like to show 8 statements out of the category 1 + 8 statements out of category 2 and 8 statements out of category 3. This will change for the next block (12/8/4). Can I select a specific number of items out of a pool?
Additionally (2. question) I do not want a statement to be repeated. If its used. Its used. So in the second/3rd/4th blocks Items should not be repeated. Is it possible to somehow cross-out items if they have been seen once?
Does somebody know how to implement that or has something similiar to that ?
Thank you for you help, greetings Vanessa.
