Mean and Standard Deviation should be presented in parentheses:
The sample as a whole was relatively young (M = 19.22, SD = 3.45).
The average age of students was 19.22 years (SD = 3.45).
Percentages are also most clearly displayed in parantheses with no decimal places:
Nearly half (49%) of the sample was married.
Chi-Square statistics are reported with degrees of freedom and sample size in parentheses, the Pearson's Chi-Square value (rounded to two decimal places), and the significance level:
The percentage of participants that were married did not differ by gender, c²(1,N = 90) = 0.89, p = .35.
T Tests are reported like chi-squares, but only the degrees of freedom are in parentheses. Following that,
report the t statistic (rounded to two decimal places) and the significance level:
There was a significance effect for gender, t(54) = 5.43, p < .001, with woman receiving higher scores than men.
Regressions are reported with: R², F value (F), degrees of freedom (numerator, denominator; in parentheses separated by a comma next to F), and significance level (p), β. Report the β and the
corresponding t-test for that predictors for each predictor in the regression:
Multiple regression analysis was used to test if the personality traits significantly predicted participants' ratings of aggression. The results of the regression indicated the two predictors explained 35.8% of the variance (R²=.38, F(2,55)=5.56, p<.01). It was found that extraversion significantly predicted aggressive tendencies (β = .56, p<.001), as did agreeableness (β = -.36, p<.01).
ANOVAS (both one-way and two-way) are reported like the t test, but there are two degrees-of-freedom numbers to report.
First report the between-groups degrees of freedom, then report the within-groups of freedom (separated by a comma). After that
report the F statistic (rounded off to two decimal places) and the significance level:
There was a significant main effect for treatment, F(1,145) = 5.43, p = .02, and a significant interaction, F(2,145) = 3.24, p = .04.
