I am looking for a statistical method which measures the relationship between two variables which are based on different likert scales and are independent from each other.
The first variable is a score which represents the pro-environmental behavior (PEB) (Likert Scale A)
The second variable represents the pereceived persuasiveness towards selected game design elements (Likert Scale B)
My aim is to show a relationship between the pro-environmental behavior score and the perceived persuasiveness (e.g. - Do people with a higher PEB - score perceived certain game design elements differently?)
I was thinking about a simple pearson correlation?
Furthermore, I have age and education, which may influence the PEB - score as well (this I want to show in a second step - probably through a multiple regression analysis).
