For multifactor experimental designs in which the levels of at least one of the factors are ordered we demonstrate the use of components that provide a deep nonparametric scrutiny of the data. The components assess generalized correlations and the resulting tests include and extend the Page and umbrella tests.

Smooth tests were developed to test for a finite mixture distribution using two smooth models. Each has its own strengths and weaknesses. These tests are demonstrated by testing for a mixture of two normal distributions. Some sizes and powers are given, as is an example.
