The Admin Panel
The Admin Panel can be accessed at
/admin. It is made of two parts:
- The monitoring section
- The configuration section
Here you can create and run batches of games and monitor player statuses.
Here you can create factors and treatments before creating batches.
Players can only play once. If there is a problem (e.g., the lobby timed out or the game was full), or if you want players to play again, you can clear them, which allows them to play again.
In the monitoring section, in the players tab, you can see the status of every Player. A button called
Clear, to the right of each player line, allows you to clear them one by one.
Once retired, players can refresh their page/return to the link of your game, and they will be randomly allocated to a game with the same treatment as before. They are allocated to a game with the same treatment, so they don't discover a game with different conditions or instructions.
The treatments and factors are saved in a
.empirica/treatments.yaml. It is often shared by simply committing it to your code versioning system (e.g., Git).
You can edit treatments and factors manually in that file (make sure to reload the admin page after edits).
Alternatively, you can edit these directly in the admin UI, which will update the
