Tutorial: Adjusting the timing of trials

In theĀ first andĀ second tutorials on how to adjust the timing of elements in your study, we covered how to control the timing of stimuli and responses within a trial. This post will show you how to control the timing of the trials within your study. Adjusting the time between trials (a.k.a., intertrial intervals) Creating trials that proceed automatically Using trial…

Tutorial: Advanced stimulus timing features

In the first tutorial about stimulus timing, we covered the primary way you can control the timing of your stimuli: by modifying the barrier property of each stimulus. But some timing scenarios are best controlled using other methods besides the barrier property, especially when you’re dealing with certain types of static stimuli (like text stimuli). This tutorial will cover a few additional ways…

Conditional Branching is coming to FindingFive!

Note that the code examples on this page are outdated. Please refer to the FindingFive study grammar for how to use conditional branching on FindingFive. A common design in many behavioral studies is to show participants different sequences of trials that are conditional on participants’ previous responses. For example, in a typical learning study that features a training phase and…

Tutorial: Participant Grouping

Are you trying to assign some participants in your experiment to a control condition while other participants experience an experimental manipulation? Or, do you want to counterbalance the presentation of study elements across different participants to take care of potential order effects in your study? FindingFive can easily handle these situations with participant grouping. Participant grouping allows you to create…

Researcher Interview with Dr. Sarah Bibyk

The core mission of FindingFive is to make the life of behavioral researchers just a little bit easier when it comes to conducting online studies. We are curious about how much success we have achieved, and how much work there is left to do. To that end, we asked a few researcher users of FindingFive for their thoughts on the…
