Abstract:

Concern is shown with sequences of tests of the composite null hypothesis that the distribution function of an observed sample is a member of a specified scale-location parameter family, where the scale and location parameters are unknown and unspecified. First, a test of this hypothesis proposed by L. Weiss is studied. Then several tests for the most common special case--that of normality are analyzed.
