    Can you use this stats test if you're measuring the time e.g. the time taken for an animal to cross a line? I'd imagine that you could if the experiment still has discrete categories.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    The word I highlighted tells you whether or not you do chi squared. You only do chi-squared when you are recording frequencies, if you are on AQA Biology, then the other 2 stats test are spearmans rank and standard error and 95% confidence limits. Spearmans rank is looking for a correlation between measurements. 95% confidence limits is looking for differences between mean values in measurements.

    In other words, you do not do chi-squared because you are taking measurements


    Hope this helped
