How to break your logic down into smaller sections

Logic files can often look daunting. Breaking your logic down into smaller sections can help in a number of ways:

  • It looks neater, clearer and less confusing.
  • It helps you to keep track of the sections you have done and have not done.
  • It helps other people to make sense of your logic.
  • It helps you to find specfic parts of your logic.

If you want to write something that is not logic in the logic file e.g. the title of a logic section, or a note to yourself, you can use the '#' sign. The words you write on the line after the '#' sign will appear in green and will be easily distinguishable from the rest of the logic file.

We recommend you write your logic in a logical order and break it down into sections using the '#' sign. For example, your subheadings might be:

  • # Registration/login pages
  • # Randomisation logic
  • # Pages for intervention group
  • # Pages for control group
  • # Questionnaires
  • # Session 1 logic
