## What is K independent samples test?

This nonparametric test is to be used when you have k independent samples, in order to determine if the samples come from a single population or if at least one sample comes from a different population than the others.

**How do you present independent t-test results?**

The basic format for reporting the result of a t-test is the same in each case (the color red means you substitute in the appropriate value from your study): t(degress of freedom) = the t statistic, p = p value. It’s the context you provide when reporting the result that tells the reader which type of t-test was used.

### How do you know if Kruskal Wallis is significant?

A significance level of 0.05 indicates a 5% risk of concluding that a difference exists when there is no actual difference. If the p-value is less than or equal to the significance level, you reject the null hypothesis and conclude that not all the group medians are equal.

### When should you use an independent samples t test?

Use an independent samples t test when you want to compare the means of precisely two groups—no more and no less! Typically, you perform this test to determine whether two population means are different.

**What is K sample?**

The k-sample Anderson-Darling test is a nonparametric statistical procedure that tests the hypothesis that the populations from which two or more groups of data were drawn are identical. Each group should be an independent random sample from a population.

#### What is the difference between Mann-Whitney and Kruskal-Wallis?

The major difference between the Mann-Whitney U and the Kruskal-Wallis H is simply that the latter can accommodate more than two groups. Both tests require independent (between-subjects) designs and use summed rank scores to determine the results.

#### Does Kruskal-Wallis assume equal variance?

There are certain assumptions in the Kruskal-Wallis test. It is assumed that the observations in the data set are independent of each other. It is assumed that the distribution of the population should not be necessarily normal and the variances should not be necessarily equal.

**How do I run an independent sample t test in SPSS?**

To run an Independent Samples t Test in SPSS, click Analyze > Compare Means > Independent-Samples T Test. The Independent-Samples T Test window opens where you will specify the variables to be used in the analysis. All of the variables in your dataset appear in the list on the left side.

## What is the independent and dependent variable in SPSS?

The independent variable should be categorical and include exactly two groups. (Note that SPSS restricts categorical indicators to numeric or short string values only.) The dependent variable should be continuous (i.e., interval or ratio).

## When should I use k independent samples?

We use K Independent Samples if we compare 3 or more groups of cases. They are “independent” because our groups don’t overlap (each case belongs to only one creatine condition). Depending on your license, your SPSS version may or may have the E x act option shown below.

**What is SPSS median test for 2 independent medians?**

SPSS Median Test for 2 Independent Medians. The median test for independent medians tests if two or more populations have equal medians on some variable. That is, we’re comparing 2(+) groups of cases on 1 variable at a time.
