Procedures for discriminating between models from separate families of hypotheses are examined, with principal emphasis on procedures invariant under location and scale transformations. The discrimination procedures considered are compared using Monte Carlo samples as data for five pairs of invariant distributions. These comparisons are made with respect to the best invariant procedure, a procedure requiring no knowledge of sampling distributions, using approximate relative efficiencies calculated from the Monte Carlo results. On the basis of these efficiencies and the computational complexities of the procedures, suggestions are made for their use.
