Contents

Content coding is relatively straightforward, consisting of abbreviations for the category to which the responded object belongs. The symbols and their linked criteria for coding content are shown in the table. 

Coding Multiple Contents:

All contents appeared in the response should be coded.
Except those involving Nature, Botany, and Landscape.
Na always takes priority over Bt or Ls, and is the only score.

Example: "An animal (A) stepping over some stones (Ls) that are in the water (Na), he's trying to get to this bush (Bt)" = A,Na

If Na is not included but Bt and Ls are, only one of the two is scored.

Example: "An animal (A) stepping over some stones (Ls) next to this bush (Bt)" = A,Bt or A,Ls   

When multiple contents are entered, they are separated by comma, with the first representing the content that is most central to the response.

Usually, but not always, the main content will appear first in the response.

Example: " A painting (Art) of a person (H) with a large hat on (Cg) standing next to a tree (Bt)" = Art,H,Cg,Bt (the painting is the main content).  

"This could be a tree (Bt) I suppose, and there is a person standing there, next to the tree, she's got a big hat on (Cg)" = H,Bt,Cg (the person is central in this response).
