I am clueless and need help fast with my study. I am new to this forum so I hope I’m in the right place!
Anyway, my research study is about determining whether or not there is a relationship between Parental Behaviors and self-esteem in adolescence. Each subject completed two measures, one for perceived parental behaviors and the other to assess the respondent’s self-esteem. Each measure has four scales and the items use a five point lickert scale of strongly agree, agree, not sure, disagree and strongly disagree. These were scored from 5-1 for positive statements and 1-5 for negative statements.
How do I correlate the two measures to establish whether there is a relationship or not?
