Description

Import sci:vesco data files.

Usage

1

Arguments

file

Filename including path if file is not in current working directory. File can also be a complete URL. The fileformat is .dat.

dir

Alternative way to supply the directory where the file is located (default NULL).

Value

A single repgrid object in case one file and a list of repgrid objects in case multiple files are imported.

Note

Sci:Vesco offers the options to rate the construct poles seperately or using a bipolar scale. The seperated rating is done using the "tetralemma" field. The field is a bivariate plane on which each of the four (tetra) corners has a different meaning in terms of rating. Using this approach also allows ratings like: "both poles apply", "none of the poles apply" and all intermediate ratings can be chosen. This relaxes the bipolarity assumption often assumed in grid theory and allows for deviation from a strict bipolar rating if the constructs are not applied in a bipolar way. Using the tetralemma field for rating requires to analyze each construct seperately though. This means we get a double entry grid where the emergent and constrast pole ratings might not simply be a reflection of on another. The tetralemma field is not yet supported and importing will fail. Currently only bipolar ratings are suppoerted.

If a tetralemma field has been used for rating, OpenRepGrid will offer the option to transform the scores into "normal" grid ratings (i.e. restricted to bipolarity) by projecting the ratings from the bivariate tetralemma field onto the diagonal of the tetralemma field and thus forcing a bipolar rating type. This option is not recommended due to the fact that the conversion is susceptible to error when both ratings are near to zero.

TODO: For developers: The element IDs are not used yet. This might cause wrong assignments.
