Block rank statistics. (English) Zbl 0547.62030
Summary: When testing differences of treatment effects in randomized blocks with two treatments, one often applies a rank test of symmetry on the differences between the observations in each block. In this paper we propose an extension of this technique to more than two treatments and give some asymptotic properties of the proposed test statistics.
