Lerp not moving 2D object correctly

Hello there! I am having trouble with smooth movement for a 2D prefab object. In the example below, I am looking at a bullseye. The script is for a dot that moves between the rings of the bullseye. Ring1 is the innermost ring, and by pressing a button the dot should slowly move from ring1 to ring2. I am not sure why it is not moving. I am new to C#. Thank you!

using System.Collections;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using UnityEngine;

public class Paddle : MonoBehaviour
    [SerializeField] bool player1;

    [SerializeField] float rawSpeed = 1f;

    [Header("Ring Positions")]
    [SerializeField] float ring1;
    [SerializeField] float ring2;
    [SerializeField] float ring3;
    [SerializeField] float ring4;

    bool controlsLocked;

    // Update is called once per frame
    void Update()

    void Control()
        if (!controlsLocked)
            if (player1)
                if (transform.localPosition.y == ring1)
                    if (Input.GetAxis("P1_Horizontal") < -0.1)
                        controlsLocked = true;
                        Vector2 startPosition = transform.localPosition;
                        Vector2 targetPosition = new Vector2(transform.localPosition.x, ring2);
                        float calculatedSpeed = rawSpeed * Time.deltaTime;
                        transform.localPosition = Vector2.Lerp(startPosition, targetPosition, calculatedSpeed);
                        controlsLocked = false;


Last parameter of Lerp is a number between 0 and 1. Where 0 represents startPosition and 1 represents targetPosition. Your calculateSpeed that you are passing is always going to be close to zero, because you are multiplying 1 by the time since last frame (Time.deltaTime). You instead need to make sure that calculateSpeed steadily increments from 0 til it eventually reaches 1.

So calculateSpeed should instead be a member variable since it needs to persist between frames
then you can have

calculateSpeed += Time.deltaTime;

When calculateSpeed reaches 1 it is at the target position. (Which you will probably want to reset to zero afterwards). Alternatively I think you should look at SmoothDamp or a Tweening Library like DoTween, it would simplify what you want to achieve to one method call.
