Degree of freedom for Means: Wilcoxon-Mann-Whitney test

jazzIIIlove asked
Last Modified: 2016-02-09
My G*Power setup is as follows and my method is A.R.E.

1) What does ARE stand for in G*Power?

2) my degree of freedom is 53.2960000. My question is that is my DF Ok? I didn't set it up specifically and the value is awkward.

3) how can i interpret this with my results? E.g. Given a b and c, the mean difference is k, so that I can reject/accept null hypothesis. What are my parameters?
