ERRATA

Description: Error in IAT file
Posted: 2013-Nov-22

In the code used to create the IAT summary scores, the following section of the script contains an error:

*Mark trials with latency > 4000 ms (to provide a count of these) .
COMPUTE flag_4K = 0 .
IF (RT GT 10000) flag_4K = 1 .

In the third line, 10000 should be 4000. The corrected script would be as follows:

*Mark trials with latency > 4000 ms (to provide a count of these) .
COMPUTE flag_4K = 0 .
IF (RT GT 4000) flag_4K = 1 .

The syntax file and data file (zipped here) contain the erroneous version of the flag_4K variable. This error does not affect the IAT scores. Analysts who wish to use the flag_4K variable should re-compute that variable using the corrected code above.

We thank Tobias Stark from Stanford University for noting this error.
