The exact null distribution of the ranked-set sample (RSS) sign test statistic is computed. The power of this test is compared with the simple random sample (SRS) sign test for some continuous symmetric distributions. The problem of imperfect judgment is discussed. The superiority of RSS over SRS is demonstrated.
