Data Collection Forms and Logs

File Format for Data Collection

  • write all data in csv format
  • do not repeat participant id’s
  • NEVER delete any data, and explain why data was not used in README
  • append bad data with _bad
  • readme.txt in every folder
Examples:
  • ‘session1_012317’ would be a session you ran on Jan 23rd, 2017
  • ‘s008_fixationCross_012317’ would be data from subject 's008' on stimuli 'fixationCross' on Jan 23rd, 2017
