    Ordinal or continuous scale?


    I have carried experiments where the participants were asked to rate a parameter on a scale. The scale starts from “not heavy” to “heavy”; the subject could mark an X desired position (see enclosed picture). The data is normalized for each participant after each experiment (i.e. the smallest value for each participant is set to 0, the largest to 1).

    Can my rating procedure be considered to be measured on an ordinal or continuous scale? Are all rating scales ordinal? I.e. should I use Kruskall-Wallis, rather than ANOVA?

    Thank you!
