# Thread: Need help determining proper test, im confused

1. ## Need help determining proper test, im confused

Describe relationship between mother and father's education. I recoded each into three levels. I think it is spearman rho, but second part of question is describing same relationship controlling for family size- continuous. Help please

My second question is there an association between 1 likert scale question and gender and a 2nd likert scale question and gender. I have obtained mean for both questions. So I have a continous and 2 level categorical variables, but I am confused with both questions as to what is dv and what is IV?

I think they are both non parametric tests. Just not sure which ones to use

hey alex,
I am in graduate school. I am on my final now and passed the above question. I have new questions. I don't want answers, I just need help determining correct test given the 4 questions on final and the dataset I am using. I'd be willing to pay. email me @ justmeandk@gmail.com . Basically, I am working with a data set from a bigbros big sis program. It utilizes several likert scales to gauge reading interest and mentor relationship. I have 4 questions and need to determine which tests to run but I am confused on 2 of them. We have covered t-tests, anova, correlations, bivariate regression, simple regression, Chi-square, logistical binary regression. I have no problem interpreting, but she is making it difficult to figure out test. Can you help me?
