4. ### Should i use ancova or anova? One continuous variable and one categorical variable.

I have one dependent variable that is continuous. It is the score on a particular achievement test. I have two independent variables. One categorical (three levels of ability) and one continuous variable (motivation) that is based on 6 likert items (ranges from 0 to 42). I want to find out...
