from what I can tell, PASW v.18 (the new version of SPSS) only gives you the p value of nonparametric tests. I am calculating Kruskal Wallis and Mann Whitney tests, and need to report the test statistic, not just p. Can someone please help? Thanks!
PASW 18 does give you the test statistic in addition to the p value.
For example, if you have selected Mann Whitney test, the output from SPSS will include a Test Statistics box that shows the mann Whitney U statistic
The same thing applies for the Kruskal Wallis test, although note that SPSS labels the statistic Chi-Square, rather than H.
