The One-Sample Runs Test: A Category of Exception.
Mogull, Robert G.
Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics, v19 n3 p296-303 Fall 1994
Describes the one-sample runs test, which is used to identify a nonrandom pattern in a sequence of dichotomous elements. Demonstrates that this test is incapable of signaling departures from randomness with run lengths of two. Such run lengths generate a unique category of anomaly in the overall performance of the test. (SLD)
