Some normality test statistics are proposed by testing non-nested hypotheses of the normal distribution and the Laplace distribution. If the null hypothesis is normal, the proposed non-nested tests are asymptotically equivalent to Geary's (1935) normality test. The proposed test statistics are compared by the method of approximate slopes and Monte Carlo experiments.
