Inferences concerning order restrictions on a collection of parameters are considered with the order restrictions of a form. Clearly, some parameter sets conform more closely to these order restrictions than others. The authors interested in measures of the degree of conformity. Some of the measures available in the literature for the totally ordered case are generalized to the partially ordered case and the theory developed is applied to several tests of order restricted hypotheses.
