I am currently working with the raw data from an (classic) IAT.
While most of my cases show regular data (i.e., reaction time in ms and then a 0 or 1 indicating the incorrect or correct assignment), I have some cases where it just says "false" instead of reporting a reaction time.
Practically speaking, it looks like this:
(...) [1378,1],[false,1] (...)
I am wondering why this happens? Maybe you have an explanation for me. I am not necessarily an IAT expert myself so I might be unaware of something that produces this output.
I thought: Did the participant not respond to the stimulus? And if so, after how much time is a response considered "false"?
Thanks in advance for your help!
Note: I also speak German, so a German reply would be totally sufficient.
