    correct no response being recorded as "False"

    Hi,

    Why is a correct "no response" being recorded as "false" in the DirectRT data file? If a participant is correctly not pressing any buttons, I want the data file to indicate this is a "true" response (not false).

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thank you.

    Hi vlaws,
    Are you using -1 (no response) as a valid response option? Using -1 as a correct response (so first, as in: -1,57) should have the resulting data list those nonresponses as TRUE.

    If you want to send along your input file, I can take a look. Otherwise, you can compare your input file to one of the samples that capitalizes on having no reposne being vaild- the Go-No Go task (gnat). Compare your time file to theirs, and see if you can spot the difference.

    Hope this helps!
