What I did was assign each value a number (e.g. often was 4, never was 1). I tested this with 10 of the 115 trials, but due to the low number of possibilities there were only something like 7 points, all over the place when I did the scatterplot.

So my question is, am I on the right track, and if not, is there another, better way to make inferences based on my data?

The project is measuring, among other things, how many M-rated video games participants played (often-never), with number of real-life fights (0-5+). Any help would be greatly appreciated!
