If I am doing a questionnaire and seeing whether there is a differnce between males and females in the way they cope with stress (problem/emotion focused). What would be my IV and DV? Would the IV be either male or female and the DV the questionnaire because it stays the same?

This would be an experiment right? Because I am looking for a difference?

IV = Male/Female
DV = Coping

Because, according to your hyp, coping is dependent on gender, thus making gender independent.

I would label the IV 'Sex' rather than 'Gender'.

Also.

I have to chose a statistical test and I was thinking about using the chi square test. Then I can split up the male and female responses into categories. Is the right? Also it says I have to justify it by saying what type of data I am putting in e.g. interval because.............. And why it has/ has not met parametric assumptions. I have not an idea what that means. I am going to go and google it but if anyone can tell me one on one I will learn it quicker.
