In two other papers order statistics were used to derive some tests for the population median which have significance levels which are either exact or bounded under some very general conditions. These order statistics tests were found to be very efficient for small samples from a normal population; also they can be applied with very little computation. This paper contains applications of these tests to several well known statistical problems.
