Is OSWeb suited for my experiment?
Good afternoon everyone,
I've built an experiment and I'm wondering if I could carry it out online with OSWeb (after a few adjustments of course), in other words, is OSWeb suited for my experiment? It's a psycholinguistic experiment where response time to a visually presented Spanish target word is recorded.
Participants first hear the first syllable of a Spanish word over their headphones (e.g. SÁ_), and at the word offset they see a word on a screen which is either a complete match (SÁBADO), a match but with stress on a different syllable (e.g. SALÓN), a mismatch (e.g. MOSQUITO) or a non-word (e.g. FÍTULA). They need to judge whether the word exists in Spanish or not, yes or no (SÍ/NO). Presumably their response time is faster when seeing the matching prime (the target word would have been primed in their minds).
A few caveats; I cannot control the participant's RAM speed, wifi connection, quality of their keybord, and quality of their headphones, but then of course those would presumably be constant factors for each individual participants so...
Does this sound problematic or good?
Many thanks in advance,
