Help with choosing statistical test

I am currently running my undergraduate project and cannot figure out what statistical test to use to assess significance.
We have two IVs:
Our first IV is mean group score on the SD3 Dark Triad Scale. (within subjects)
Our Second IV is group condition. We have three conditions for this: two experimental and one control (Between subjects).
We then have three DVs measured for all participants
Two of these are scale means
One is whether participants clicked a link at the end of the study, or not (two levels)

We are not sure how to run analyses on this data using SPSS and I hope someone can provide insight into this.

Hi Sandra,

Can you please show what are the possible values for each IV and for the DV?

Hello, thank you for the reply! I'm not sure I understand what you mean by the values? Do you mind explaining please?

For example weight- continuous
"color - categorical:red, blue, green

For example weight- continuous
"color - categorical:red, blue, green
IV 1 - The means of SD3 scale- Ordinal data
IV 2 - which Condition participants are in- categorical: Positive condition, negative condition and control condition
DV 1 and DV 2 - The means of two separate scales- both ordinal
DV 3- Whether participants clicked a link or not - Dichotomous data

Thank you!

IV 1 - The means of SD3 scale- Ordinal data 1,2,3,4,5 ?
IV 2 - create dummy variables: DV 1 and DV 2 - The means of two separate scales- both ordinal,

DV 1 and DV 2 - The means of two separate scales- both ordinal
what are the values of DV1 DV2?

DV 3 -logistic regression

Yes, IV 1 has 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
DV 1 and DV 2 have 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 options also. The mean of these has been calculated

Hi Sandra,

Since DV1 and DV2, since each DV is an average of only 2 items, I assume you should use the ordinal regression.
