Variance component testing in multilevel models

Abstract:
Available variance component tests are reviewed and three new score tests are presented. In the first score test, the asymptotic normal distribution of the test statistic is used as a reference distribution. In the other two score tests, a Satterthwaite approximation is used for the null distribution of the test statistic. We evaluate the performance of the score tests and other available tests by means of a Monte Carlo study. The new tests are computationally relatively cheap and have good power properties.
