Article Abstract

Conventional probability plotting paper can be readily augmented to permit graphical determination of quantiles for order statistics. An example of such paper is given for the normal family of distributions. The use of order statistic quantiles in testing whether a variate follows a specified distribution is illustrated. It is shown that the power of such a test against alternatives in the same family of distributions may be found using the same modified probability paper.
