In this study, to power comparison test, different univariate normality testing procedures are compared by using new algorithm. Different univariate and multivariate test are also analyzed here. And also review efficient algorithm for calculating the size corrected power of the test which can be used to compare the efficiency of the test. Also to test the randomness of generated random numbers. For this purpose, 1000 data sets with combinations of sample size n = 10, 20, 25, 30, 40, 50, 100,

The assessment of normality using statistical tests is sensitive to the sample size. Observed that with the increase of n, overall powers are increased but Shapiro Wilk (SW) test, Shapiro Francia (SF) test and Andeson Darling (AD) test are the most powerful test among other tests. Cramer-Von-Mises (CVM) test performs better than Pearson chi-square, Lilliefors test has better power than Jarque Bera (JB) Test. Jarque Bera (JB) Test is less powerful test among other tests.
