Research Help

#1
Hi I am working on a study and I need help in deciding what test to use.

I am comparing two groups. Domestic violence (DV) being present versus No domestic violence present. Additionally, I developed a survey in which I had participants answer questions regarding their perception to how their children manifest anger.

I think the presence or lack of presence of DV is the independent variable. And the dependent variable consists of the responses from the survey.

I think maybe an independent sample t-test is the test I should use. Not sure. Help!
:confused:

It depends on your sample size and on the scale
on which the responses were measured (categorical,
ordinal or interval scale).

With kind regards
