Default Proper quantification IHH



Since I'm the beginner in IHH, I would like an explanation.

I have analyzed 20 visual fields and have the following results:
0 (no expression)= 4 fields
1 (expression +)= 10 fields
2 (expression ++)=3 fields
3 (expression +++)= 3 fields.

Now if I want to determine the average expression for all fields, should I use mean or median value ? I'm having doubts since this is an ordinal scale.

Thank you very much for the answer.
