Abstract : This paper explores the use of t-statistics based on two or four order statistics. The functions of the order statistics which are used to define the t-statistics are the hinges. The hinges are approximately the quartiles and are either exact order statistics or the means of two adjacent order statistics. Two t-statistics based on the hinges are examined and compared to other t-statistics, including Student's t, using various criteria. (Author)
