skewness test, empirical skewness, power test function, Visual Basic for Applications
The aim of this publication is to present a new goodness-of-fit test oriented toward normal distribution. The test uses three different versions of skewness measures: classic, median and Bowley’s skewness. Critical values for these skewness measures at significance level ἁ were determined. The power of the proposed test obtained on the basis of a numerical experiment was compared with the power of the Kolmogorov-Smirnov goodness-of-fit test (K-S test).
