This paper evaluates the D’Agostino SU test and the Triples test for testing symmetry versus asymmetry. These procedures are evaluated as preliminary tests in the selection of the most appropriate procedure for testing the equality of means with two independent samples under a variety of symmetric and asymmetric sampling situations. Key words: symmetry; asymmetry; preliminary testing.
