Hello Stephanie. Apparently, you are running the NPTESTS command rather
than the old NPAR TESTS command, which is now accessed via "legacy dialogs"
under Nonparametric tests. To see the full output from NPTESTS, you have to
double click to open the "model viewer".
Suggestion for SPSS: If you are going to persist with this "model viewer"
type output*, how about adding a footnote that says "Double-click to see all
of the output", or something like that? The first time a colleague saw
output from NPTESTS, we both found it very confusing, because in the
immediately visible output, the "decision" and the p-value did not agree
with each other. (The discrepancy was resolved when we eventually figured
out that we had to double-click.)
* My preference is that all of the output be visible (at least optionally)
without having to double-click on anything.
"When all else fails, RTFM."
