im still learin stuff in stats still havnt got the hang of it yet. but can i use the 1-Sample K-S method to test for normailty. i have a sample size of 185, im looking at differnces between 2 groups lets say male n female and have 6 varibles (interval)

i did read somewhere that 1-Sample K-S is just for 1 sample but if i am testing the sample as a whole for normailty is that acceptable? this method gives me non-sig results so i would able to use parametreic tests

the other other method gives me 4/6 varibles that are sig.

i really hope this makes sense!!?? and some1 could shed some light on this ohh and in the easiest way to understand as i am not familar with many stats terms
