calibration question

I asked four calibration questions and see the respondents answers in the sawtooth output data.  However, I have no way of knowing which attributes/levels were shown to the respondents, which makes the answers meaningless.  Is there a way for me to retrieve these?

Thank you

Hi Monica,

This information gets saved in data file in system variables but would include some effort to extract.

You can see concept# getting recorded in variables -
 ACBC_Calibration1_shown, ACBC_Calibration2_shown etc.

Information about these concept configuration can be extracted from  variables like "sys_ACBC_ex_design1, design2.... which contains information of attribute levels of predefined concepts.

I understand that this is not super easy. So, we as best practice always save information of attribute levels of each screen of screener, choice task and calibration in hidden variables at run time so that we can use them at later stages if required.

Another source of information area can be cho file but I have not explored that yet.

Do let me know if you need any further help in this regards.
