In the paper rank test statistics for testing the hypothesis of randomness are constructed for the case where only some observations are exactly measurable and the other ones are only known to lie in the intervals $(y_{j-1},y_j), \ 1\leq j\leq k, \ y_0< ... <y_k$. The observations lying in the same interval are treated as a tie in the case of noncontinuous distribution. The method of randomization and the method of averaged scores are used for the construction of linear statistics. The asymptotic normality of these statistics under the hypothesis and under contiguous alternatives is established.
