If you are required to use inferential statistics (see your specification in Appendix 1) then the test of the hypothesis is your inferential test (such as the Wilcoxon test). However, if you are not required to use inferential tests then you simply compare the descriptive statistics and plot them on a graph.

Remember too that if someone scores particularly highly on a questionnaire then they do not need to be alarmed by this. Most questionnaires have little diagnostic validity (although some do of course) and you should never give advice selectively. One safeguard might be to provide all your participants with a leaflet published by a recognised organisation or society that informs them about the issue you are studying. If a participant asks for your advice about their personal health or well-being then you must indicate that you are not qualified to provide such advice, but you should have identified in advance an appropriate source of professional advice for them.
