1. ### HELP! T-test, normality assumption. Great difference between Shapiro Wilk and Q-Qplot/ Z-score calculation

You're right about this. The thing is I need to write down the interpretation of the assumptions I've tested prior to my T-test. That's why I want to know whether I should interpret the normality output of the Shapiro Wilk or of the Q-Q plots/ Z-score calculations
2. ### HELP! T-test, normality assumption. Great difference between Shapiro Wilk and Q-Qplot/ Z-score calculation

Here are some examples of the steps I'm following through:
3. ### HELP! T-test, normality assumption. Great difference between Shapiro Wilk and Q-Qplot/ Z-score calculation

I have to test for normality since it's an assumption of the T-test (according to my text book that I need to follow through)... I only wonder though if I should look at the Shapiro Wilk output or at the Z-score (Z= Skweness/Se, and Z= Kurtosis/SE ), and Q-Q plots to determine normality.
4. ### HELP! T-test, normality assumption. Great difference between Shapiro Wilk and Q-Qplot/ Z-score calculation

Since I can only add 5 attachements at a time. Here are the other Q-Q plots
5. ### HELP! T-test, normality assumption. Great difference between Shapiro Wilk and Q-Qplot/ Z-score calculation

Hey there! I have a question about the difference in results between the Shapiro Wilk test and the calculation of a Z score with skweness and kurtosis (divided by SE). I have a sample size of N = 143. It is divided into two groups (Western candidates N = 71 and non-Western candidates N = 72)...
6. ### Testing covariables ( doing an(c)ova with multiple independent variables?)? in SPSS

Yes, that's true, but which results do I report in my "results section". Do I report the F-value and significance of educational level only if I want to answer my question? Or do I report more? (like also the interaction ?) And as you can see the values are different, depending if I put all...
7. ### Testing covariables ( doing an(c)ova with multiple independent variables?)? in SPSS

Hi, Thanks for your reply! I have 16 groups which can be divided into four groups: e.g.: both primes, ethnic prime only, personal objectivity prime only, control groups (no prime at all). (See attachment). Within these groups participants either got a western candidate (variable candidate...
8. ### Testing covariables ( doing an(c)ova with multiple independent variables?)? in SPSS

Hi everyone, I'm stuck in my analyses of my covariables. Here are the questions I want to test: What is the influence of educational level on judgments and decisions of participants? What is the influence of organizational level on judgments and decisions of participants? What is the...
9. ### How to create 1 (continuous) variable by using two (continuous) variables (and ignore the missing) in SPSS?

Thanks I fixed it ! :) I did the following: compute appl_credent = Wes_appl_credent . if sysmis(Wes_appl_credent) appl_credent = NonWes_appl_credent . execute.
10. ### Which analyses do I need to measure my control variables? in SPSS

Hey everyone! I'm currently busy with my statistical analyses for my master thesis, but I got stuck! Hope you would want to help me out :). I have 16 groups which can be divided into four groups: e.g.: both primes, ethnic prime only, personal objectivity prime only, control groups (no prime at...
11. ### How to create 1 (continuous) variable by using two (continuous) variables (and ignore the missing) in SPSS?

Hi there, I am currently busy with my master thesis and I have the following question. I want to create a variable called applicant credential (appl_credent), by combining the following two variables: western applicant credential and nonwestern applicant credential. a participant either has a...
