Bring out the difference between a randomized and non-randomized test. Explain how the decision based on a randomized test can be taken in the discrete set-up.


A test T of a hypothesis H is said to be non-randomized test if the decision about the rejection or acceptance of H is based on a test statistic. H is rejected if the test statistic lies in the critical region otherwise accepted. A randomized test is one in which no test statistics is involved. The decision about H is taken on the basis of some p
