Hi guys. Just wondering if anyone could help me SPSS. I keep confusing myself, so much so that I have now input my data 3 times and I think I've still done it wrong! Any advice would be much appreciated!
A basic outline of my data
I measured the reaction times for semantic processing (i.e. reading sentences). The sentences were: high-typical true, low-typical true, high-typical false and low typical false. So there were two different factors involved, truth and typicality. I wanted to test whether high-typical sentences were processed faster than low typical, and also whether true sentences were processed faster than false. I used 64 sentences in total. Each sentence had a unique numerical code so I could easily (hah) input the info into spss/excel. The reaction times were taken from 40 different participants.
I hope someone can make sense of this aha! My main question is how to input the data into spss to start with. I used one column for item (i.e. sentence code number) and the next two columns were factor1, factor2 with value labels used to show TRUE/FALSE and HIGH/LOW. Then the next column was the reaction times. I think my first step needs to be to find the mean reaction time for each sentence type? Even typing this message has confused me...help???
