Solved – Should I report z-score, p-value or both for Mann-Whitney U test under APA guidelines


As titled, I ran a MWU test on my test results but I'm not sure what I'm supposed to report. My results section currently looks like this. Help?

I would suggest you report the statistic ($U$) and the $p$ value. That is usually sufficient. If the reviewers want $z$ scores or anything else as well, they will tell you. But that should be enough information to get past the first hurdle.

And of course, I would recommend that you check the APA Publication Manual, which I don't have with me, but which may indeed cover this particular test in its sheer comprehensiveness.
