You shall not pass (yet): Iteratively training participants with conditional branching on FindingFive

A typical learning experiment is usually split into two phases: a training phase, where participants get to familiarize themselves with the learning task, and a test phase, where the performance of participants is evaluated. In these situations, researchers usually want to know which participants are the learners – those who successfully “get” the learning task during the training phase, and…

Speeding up a study block by block

Most of the studies run on the FindingFive platform are meant to be completed in a relatively short amount of time. In fact, an average study created on FindingFive contains 190 trials, which will take an average participant about 30 minutes to finish (assuming 10-15 seconds per trial). Our platform have been able to handle studies of such sizes pretty…

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Note that the code examples on this page are outdated.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…

Introducing Property Inheritance

Hi there! We are excited to announce a handy new feature, called Property Inheritance, is now available to researchers on FindingFive. It is now possible to utilize parent-child relationships within stimuli, responses, or trial templates, where the children inherit all properties defined in their parents. For those of you who are familiar with object-oriented programming languages, this should already sound…

Data Engineer needed

Update June, 2018: (This position has been filled. Thank you.) Hey there! FindingFive is looking for a “Principal Data Engineer” (if you like fancy titles) to join our current team. The PDE will be responsible for An operational mission: Creating an administrative interface that allows the FindingFive Team to efficiently monitor and manage the operations of the FindingFive platform (for…

Interested in helping out FindingFive?

Hey there! FindingFive is looking for a “Chief Operations Volunteer” (if you like fancy titles) to join our current team of three. The COV will be responsible for introducing FindingFive to more behavioral scientists, maintaining active connections with our existing labs, and working with the rest of the team on a variety of tasks on a flexible basis. This is…
