- If the test value or p-values are less than 0.05 then the test is significant and the data not follow the normal distribution.
- If the test value is equal or greater than 0.05 then the test is not significant and the data follow the normal distribution.
Normality checking procedure using SPSS
1. we have the following data set–
2. First we have to go to Analyze→→ Descriptive statistics →→Explore
3. Drag the working variable into the Dependent list and click on Plot.
4. Select Histogram and Normality plot with test and click on Continue.
|Select histogram & normality polt|
5. click on OK
|Click on OK|
6. Now we can see the output window.
|Test of normality table|
From the above table we can see that the p-values for the first random variable is .139 and .029 respectively. Here one value is less than 0.05 so the first variable not follow the normal distribution.
And the second variable where p-vales are .200 and .106 respectively which are greater than .05, so the second variable follow the normal distribution.
