Plate results are interpreted  through local axis. While designing it is advised to consider the torsional moment in addition with the major moments.
= Mx + Mxy

If you have Z-axis upward, positive value of Mx or My indicates tension on the upper surface, and the reverse is true for if Z-axis downward.

This is a general explanation.  For detailed explanation please refer the following link or STAAD technical help.
