How to know whether the data is suitable for Person's correlation?

Postby owei » Mon May 23, 2016 8:58 am

Hi, I'm doing a research about the relationship between time spent on digital media and English language proficiency. I use Likert scale to measure English language proficiency. I compute the mean of the Likert scale to correlate with time spent. Is it the correct way of doing it? Because the scatter plot I formed is kind of weird. The line of regression is a horizontal line.
