z score and p-value for skewness, kurtosis, shapiro-wilk?

Discuss the jamovi platform, possible improvements, etc.

I'm a stats noob so apologies if this question doesn't make much sense.

I read the following in the book Statistical Analysis in JASP for skewness or kurtosis:

Z score significance: p<0.05 if z >1.96 p<0.01 if z >2.58 p<0.001 if z >3.29

It seems as though z scores and/or p value output would be useful in the descriptives for skewness, kurtosis, shapiro-wilk.

Are there any plans to add this, or is it a silly idea?

i think in the past, the idea is that descriptives are simply descriptives, and don't contain any statistical tests (although i would like to see confidence intervals in there at least).

we'd probably suggest that these go into a separate analysis or module.
