A Comparison of Some Nonparametric Tests for Scale.
Penfield, Douglas A.
Three different nonparametric tests for scale--the Siegel-Tukey (S-T), the Mood (M), and the Normal Scores (NS)--are compared in order to contrast varying methods of scale test development and usage. Procedures for developing the three scale tests are discussed, and two examples of the use of each test in solving the same problem are given. From the results obtained in the two examples, it is apparent that all the three tests tend to give equivalent answers. (DB)
