Abstract : The present work investigates the asymptotic efficiency of certain rank-order tests for testing the absence of main-effects in linear models under additivity. A distinct feature of these tests, unlike some previously available rank-tests of Friedman, Durbin, etc., is that they are based on a joint-ranking of the totality of observations after 'alignment', and yet can be applied conditionally (given epsilon = the ordered set of ranks for each block) at exact significance level for all sample sizes.
