  • * Responses were significantly different between the 2 samples at the 0.05 level using the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test. This test measures the tendency for 1 group to have higher ranked responses, so it is possible for 1 group to have consistently higher responses than another group even though the median response is the same for the 2 groups.
