Counting points in OpenSesame
I am creating an experiment for my studies. The task of the subjects is to declare in colored circles (red, green or blue) the line presented in the following as horizontal or vertical. For this they have to tap on C (horizontal) or M (vertical). After each circle, the subject should receive feedback. Depending on the circle, the possible scores differ.
If the circle is red and the respondent taps correctly, he does not get a point. However, if he taps incorrectly, 20 points are deducted.
If the circle is green and the respondent guesses correctly, he gets 20 points. If he guesses wrong, however, no points are deducted.
If the circle is blue, the respondent gets one point if he guesses correctly. If he guesses wrong, one point is deducted.
After each circle the respondent automatically gets a feedback if his answer was correct or wrong. For this I created 6 different sketchpads, which have a condition assigned in the sequence. As an example: If the circle is green and the respondent types correctly, he receives the sketchpad response_green_correct as feedback.
In one run, all combinations of color and alignment of the line should then be presented twice.
Afterwards, the respondent should receive feedback on the total of 12 processed circles. For this, however, the score mentioned above must be taken into account.
Is it possible to calculate in the syntax how often certain sketchpads were displayed and then multiply this number with the score?
I hope you can help me. I thank you in advance!
If you have any further questions about the experiment or something was incomprehensible, please feel free to ask.
Thank you very much!
