could you pls help me in my assignment.

if my answers are correct.

to identify the following as nominal, ordinal, interval or ratio.

1. percentage scores on a Math exam = ratio

2. letter grades on an English essay = ordinal

3. flavors of yogurt = nominal

4. Employee evaluations classified as: Excellent, Average and Poor = ordinal

5. ice cream flavor preference = nominal

6. number of bicycles ridden by students in the freshman class = interval

7. types of bicycles ridden by students in the freshman class = ordinal

8. the IQ of your teachers(assume equal interval scaling) = interval

9. proficiency in mathematics graded in the categories of poor, fair and good = ordinal

10. anxiety over public speaking scored on a scale of 0-100(assume the difference in anxiety between adjacent units throughout the scale is not the same.)= ratio

Thanks,

]]>>>>How do you calculate values for dependent variable if you only have results for various independent variables obtained from Lickert Scale?

First, you run a regression. There are no common methods for ordinal independent variables, but you can treat them as categorical or interval. If you are into other methods, you can try optimal scaling. Then you use the parameter estimates from the regression to score new cases.
