I was hoping that you could help me with some problems colleagues and I are having with a psychometric tool that we are developing for a short-term project. We were hoping to utilize Visual Basic C++ to get the job done. What we are essentially trying to do, but can't seem to get the code to work, is input a series of 9 numbers [which are coded for behavorial meaning] into a C++ program. The program would then store the numbers that we enter each day and then after a certain period of time, would use this pool of numbers to generate a set of 9 numbers for us. The other catch is, that we need the program to select a set of 9 numbers based upon the frequency of those numbers and the order in which they occurred. In other words, if "8" was most commonly entered into the "3rd" place, we want "8" to have a higher chance of being selected for the "3rd" place. Do you have any suggestions as to how to do this or could you help point us in the right direction as far as coding goes. I, myself, have some training in C++ but just can't get the program to work correctly. This program isn't part of an already existing program; we are trying to develop it from scratch.
Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
