Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) References See Also Examples

Description

This function produces the subset of pairs of stimuli for use in an incomplete design.

Usage

1
incomplete.design(x, samp = 1, f = 2, paper = FALSE)

Arguments

x

a vector of stimuli

samp

an integer value specifying the number of forms to sample (for odd number of stimuli) or the number of blocks to sample (for even number of stimuli). The default is samp=1.

f

an integer value specifying the number of forms from which the sampling occurs. This is only needed for an odd number of stimuli. The default is f=2.

paper

logical value. If paper=TRUE, the stimuli will not be randomized so that the results in Davison, Zieffler, Cabrera, and Karl (in press) can be replicated. The default value is paper=FALSE.

Value

A data frame is returned. The data frame includes the first and second stimulus to be presented in each pair of stimuli. It also includes the block number for matrix sampling and the form to which the pair should be assigned.

## Choose stimuli for an incomplete design for nine stimuli.
## The function will sample 1 form from the 2 created
data(big.nine)
incomplete.design(big.nine, samp = 1, f = 2, paper = TRUE)

## Choose stimuli for an incomplete design for eight stimuli.
## The function will sample 4 blocks from the 7 possible blocks
data(big.eight)
incomplete.design(big.eight, samp = 4)

## Choose stimuli for an incomplete design for 20 stimuli.
## The function will sample 10 blocks from the 19 possible blocks
data(top.twenty)
incomplete.design(top.twenty, samp = 10)
