I hope you can help me with the following question

My design was a 2 x 2 with a single item measuring responsibility on a 10 point scale as my dv.

However, my data is not normally distributed, and a number of standard transformations did not seem to help out here. That's why I was looking at non-parametric alternatives.

I came across the ANOVA on ranks as a viable option. Here you rank your data and then redo the standard ANOVA. This approach is considered to be quite robust against all kinds of data violations.

However, now I think of it, my DV is already a 10-point ranked (ordinal) variable. Does that mean I do not need to worry about normality in this scenario?

Thanks for the information!
