Abstract : When two populations must be sampled at different times, one cannot test for shift using the standard sequential probability ratio test based on paired observations. However, it is still meaningful to obtain the later sample sequentially. A test for shift with one samplesize fixed and the other samplesize random is proposed, some of its properties are developed under normal theory assumptions, and a comparison is made with the completely fixed samplesize procedure.
