Article Abstract

A FORTRAN computer program is presented that performs a simple test for normality based on the fact that the mean and variance of a sample are independent if and only if the underlying population is normal. The program provides the approximate descriptive level of significance for the test. A description of the procedure is given along with a numerical example.
