I conducted research to investigate whether students preferred one particular programming approach to another. Students indicated their gender and answered a series of questions that used a 5-point Likert scale. I am attempting to analyse whether there is a significant difference in the preference of programming approach for each gender individually. For example the question "I preferred learning to program using Platform A more than Platform B" generated the following results for female students:
Strongly Disagree: 0 Disagree: 6 Neutral: 8 Agree: 11 Strongly Agree: 6
There are 31 students, therefore for each answer the expected value ought to be 6.2. Would it be appropriate to calculate a Chi Squared value in this instance?
