  New instructions on second iteration
Posted by: HF2021 - 05-08-2024, 01:36 PM - Forum: Study Grammar & Management - Replies (2)

When using iterations with the accuracy method, if a participant fails the first try, they are taken back to the instructions just prior to the start of the first try.  Is there a way to give them new instructions after the first fail and before the second try, for example, something like: "Oops! You failed the test. Lets try again."?  
Thank you!

  sequential presentation of image stimuli
Posted by: chiarabernini - 05-06-2024, 08:33 AM - Forum: Experimental Design - Replies (16)

Hi everyone,
for my experiment design I need a sequence of images (red and blue squares) to appear one item at a time, from left to right. I do not want the first item to disappear before the presentation of the second one, and so on...
At the end, the participant should be able to see the sequence in its entirety.
Does anyone know if this presentation modality is supported by FindingFive? 
Thank you in advance for your help!

  pseudorandomization multiple attributes
Posted by: blueorange - 04-17-2024, 01:02 AM - Forum: Study Grammar & Management - Replies (3)

Is it possible to limit the maximum number of consecutive stimuli conditions?
For example, is there a way to limit the occurrence of both attributes "aaaa" and "bbbb" showing up?
I tried both of these codes but none of them worked Sad 
"stimulus_pattern": {"order": "pseudorandom",
                            "attribute": "a", "b",
                            "min_N": 1, "max_N": 3}

"stimulus_pattern": {"order": "pseudorandom",
                            "attribute": "a",
                            "attribute": "b",
                            "min_N": 1, "max_N": 3}

  Preview mode broken
Posted by: sten_knutsen - 04-05-2024, 04:03 PM - Forum: Platform Improvement - Replies (2)

Two of us had the same problem: we were able to use Preview mode once or twice, but then after that the preview window would appear with the "broken image" sign and a message "Sorry, but we encountered an unexpected error upon processing your request."
I logged out of Finding Five and logged back in, but now I can't get anything to preview. This worked fine this morning (and I used it quite a bit).

  Cookie Error in MTurk

I am trying to launch a new MTurk session, but the Sandbox is giving me an error that it won't load the study.It says there is no content to load and my cookies may be too restrictive (I'm using Chrome).
The Preview of the study in FF works fine, though.

  When it takes too long the generate the study...
Posted by: blueorange - 03-19-2024, 06:59 PM - Forum: Platform Improvement - Replies (2)

I have an issue of my study taking way too long to generate. 
I have the notification that says "Generating the study" but doesn't seem to proceed beyond this stage. 
Would there be anything I could do to speed up this process? 
Thank you in advance as always!

There also could be a possibility that I'm impatient but taking an hour didn't occur normal to me..!

  150 trial limit
Posted by: sac429 - 03-19-2024, 10:34 AM - Forum: Study Grammar & Management - Replies (2)


I'm receiving an error that says the trials in block "preview_sentence_choice_production" exceed the upper limit of 150. 

    "preview_sentence_choice_production": {
      "trial_templates": ["preview_template","sentence_template","choice_template","production_template"],
    "pattern": {"order": "alternate_random", "repeat": 1}

Our study aims to have 72 sentences and 4 stimuli per sentence (2 text stimuli, 2 images), resulting in 288 trials according to FF.
Based on an older post in the forum, I see that there is a way to increase the maximum allowed trials. Would it be okay to add "max_trials: 300" or would this affect the performance of the study/be unideal for FF's servers? 

We may also break this block up into 2 blocks (144 trials each), which will be under the 150 limit, but I just wanted to know if increasing the max trials was a feasible option. 

Thank you for your assistance!

Question Is there a way to present an image at the text response page?
Posted by: blueorange - 02-20-2024, 01:20 AM - Forum: Experimental Design - Replies (4)

Is there a way to present an image at the text response page?
What I want to ask participants to do is to name the object that is presented as an image (like a banana) and for them to type in banana as the correct answer. 

Also, is there a simple way to link such images to the correct text response?
I'm thinking of something like:
  "stimuli":["banana_img", "apple_img", "grape_img"],
  "responses":["banana", "apple", "grape"]

Would this correctly link the given stimuli to the correct text response?

Please let me know if my questions themselves are confusing, I would be happy to explain ◡̈ 

Thanks in advance!

Question Questions RE: Prolific Compatibility
Posted by: sabele2 - 02-12-2024, 06:07 PM - Forum: Experimental Design - Replies (1)


I was wondering if anyone set up their FindingFive study on Prolific? If so, is there anything special I need to do for them to work together?


1. Is there a way to end the study early if participants fail an attention check? And if so, can we provide them with a different completion message at the end, so they can report a different completion code to Prolific?

2. After participants complete the study, is there a way to automatically redirect participants with a provided URL so that it automatically captures their completion in Prolific?

3. Prolific has a feature where you can supply participants with logins and passwords to survey tools. Is this compatible with FindingFive? Or are participants forced to make their own accounts on FindingFive?

Thank you for any and all who respond/help!

  Blank screen?
Posted by: mschenker - 12-11-2023, 06:31 PM - Forum: Platform Improvement - Replies (4)

A participant was not able to advance through my experiment. They told me that after the instructions and microphone test, they saw a blank screen with the orange progress bar at the top and no other buttons. Typically there is a blank screen as the stimuli play, but a button pops up afterward so that the participant can record. I previewed the study, created a back-up session with a new link, asked the participant to try a new browser. Does anyone have any troubleshooting ideas? Are there security settings we should consider? This has not been a problem for other participants yet, so I'm not sure what else to try.
