make_onset_data {eyetrackingR}

Make onset-contingent data.

Description

Divide trials into which AOI participants started on. Calculate switches away from this AOI, using a rolling window to determine what length consitutes a switch. Augment original data with a column indicating whether each row is a switch-away sample.

Usage

make_onset_data(data, onset_time, fixation_window_length, target_aoi,
  distractor_aoi = NULL)

Arguments

data

The original (verified) data

onset_time

When to check for participants' "starting" AOI?

fixation_window_length

Which AOI is currently being fixated is determined by taking a rolling average. This is the width of window for rolling average.

target_aoi

Which AOI is the target that should be switched *to*

distractor_aoi

Which AOI is the distractor that should be switched *from* (default = !target_aoi)

Value

Original dataframe augmented with column indicating switch away from target AOI
