Al-Sabah, Walid S. (1978) A Robust univariate procedure for testing symmetry and normality. Masters thesis, King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals.
A robust univariate test of symmetry based on the correlation between the sample mean and the sample variance is presented. This test is sensitive to skewed transformations of symmetric random variables. Bsed on a certain characterization of the normal distribution, the procedure is extended to a test of normality.
