aligned test; measurement error; rank test
Aligned rank tests are introduced in the linear regression model with possible measurement errors. Unknown nuisance parameters are estimated first and then classical rank tests are applied on the residuals. Two situations are discussed: testing about an intercept in the linear regression model considering the slope parameter as nuisance and testing of parallelism of several regression lines, i.e. whether the slope parameters of all lines are equal. Theoretical results are derived and the simulation study is also made to illustrate good performance of introduced tests.
