Likert Scale Survey - Stats

Question - I am using a likert scale survey to gather information for a correlational research question. What would be the appropriate data analysis to use when collecting data? I thought Pearson product moment correlation and regression analysis but I am told that is incorrect.:confused:
Pearson's product moment cannot be used as this requires ratio or interval data and with a Likert scale you have ordinal data so you must use an appropriate test. Spearman'r rho is one option. Hope this helps.
