In this case the variables are vectors. Their content and length depends
on the type of task, see below. If data for multiple participants or tasks
was selected, these are in separate vectors, with the stimulus and/or task name
in the name of the vector, for instance
An array with stimulus names is provided,
The first dimensions corresponds to the participations, the second to the
An additional array with participation IDs is provided,
The first dimensions corresponds to the tasks, the second to the participations,
the third to the stimuli.
An additional array with task names is provided, e.g.
These are the matrix variables contained by task type:
propertyWhere the stimuli were placed on the y-axis. Values between 0 (bottom) and 1 (top).
confidenceWhere the stimuli were placed on the x-axis. Values between 0 (left) and 1 (right).
rdmutvThis is the upper triangular vector of pairwise dissimilarities using Euclidian distance.
The three dimensional matrix structure displayed in an Octave terminal. This experiment has 6 participants, 35 dragrate tasks, and 345 stimuli.
