Hi all,

apologies for seeking advice on a general stats question. I ve run normality tests using 8 different methods:
- Lilliefors

All show that the null hypothesis that the data come from a normal distro cannot be rejected. Great. However, I don't think it looks nice to report the values of 8 different tests on a report. One note is that my sample size is really tiny (less than 20 independent cases). Without wanting to start a flame war, are there any advices of which one/ones would be more appropriate and should be reported (along with a Q-Q plot). Thank you.

Regards,
