t-test report

#1
Dear list members,
I have done t-test with SPSS and have the table. it has a lot of info. which i think is redundant.

Levene's Test for Equality of Variances t-test for Equality of Means
F Sig. t df Sig. (2-tailed) Mean Difference Std. Error Difference 95% Confidence Interval of the Difference
Lower Upper
READING Equal variances assumed 5,946 ,016 -18,921 158 ,000 -6,01679 ,31800 -6,64486 -5,38872
Equal variances not assumed -20,153 153,275 ,000 -6,01679 ,29856 -6,60660 -5,42697




Do i have to report all of it?
i'm writing a papre. what should i report as the result of the t-test?
should I report the table as it stands here?
what usually gets reported in the case of a t-test?
Thanks

Put the whole thing in an Appendix, but in the main report, you should talk about the null and alternative hypotheses, your alpha level (significance level) for the test, the t-statistic, and its p-value, and whether you had enough evidence to reject Ho.
