Hi Jeremy,

I’m also trying to make an experiment with randomized blocks and this is super helpful! However, I have a few more questions.

My each block will include study trials and test trials. Right now, these are 2 separate templates and I’m not sure how to unite them into 1 block. Here is what I have so far, I’d really appreciate your guidance!

//Phase 1 Block 1: Study Trials [randomized in Sequence]
Template("bell_bottoms_study_2AFC_1.csv", row =>
    newTrial("trials_study",
    
        newText("study_question","Click on the image as described in the audio")
            .center()
            .cssContainer({"margin-bottom":"1em"})
        ,
     
        //Load images
        newImage("target", row.target_filename),
        newImage("foil", row.foil_filename),
        
        //Load audio
        newAudio("audio", row.audio_file),
        
        //Display images
        newCanvas("image_study", 1000, 500)
            .add(0, "middle at 60%", getImage("target"))
            .add(550, "middle at 60%", getImage("foil") )
            .print()
            //.center()

        newSelector("answer_study")

        ,
