# Should I report Shapiro-Wilk to justify Mann-Whitney in Results section?

I think the title is quite straightforward, and I've tried to find the answer for this but with no luck. Do you usually report these or should we assume the reader thinks we know what we are doing?

The style is APA but I haven't seen many MW or SW reported so I have no reference to guide me by.

Thank you!
