    Which test should I use in an experimental study with a questionnaire?

    Hi all,
    I Need some help with my first experimental study.
    I would like to test the influence of different variables (x1, x2...) on an individual's decision to choose option a, b,c,d.
    I use a questionnaire, so that there are levels of willing to choose each option: for each option, the individual specifies the likelihood (most likely...not at all).
    Let's assume that the sample is big enough and there is a normal distribution. What test should I use?

    Hey yarela.

    Have you studied any categorical data analysis before? Have you done graduate statistics courses before?

    I've never worked with categorical data. Any suggestions regarding the test I should use?

    Look at regressions where you use generalized linear models on a categorical random variable.

    You will need to specify more information though for your experiment to narrow down choices of the model.
