I have the following problem. I have conducted a survey about how people have consumed media in a certain way. The scale of responses was 1=never to 9=always. Also I have recorded exam scores for a specific exam for each of the respondents. These scores however are on a scale from 1.0 to 5.0; 1.0 being the best and they can take on the incremental values in between the two boundaries (increments of 0.1; i.e. 1.1,1.2,...,4.9,5.0).
I am now exploring whether there is a relationship between the survey results and the scores.
I am not sure which method best to use to establish if there's a relationship between the two. From other questions on here, I have seen that Spearman correlation and a chi squared test might work, but I am a bit concerned about the scale of the scores and I am not 100% sure whether one would even consider this truly ordinal data.
