Glejser test

A test for heteroscedasticity in the form of the size of random error increasing proportionally to changes in one or more exogenous variables. The test is performed by regressing the absolute values of ordinary least squares residuals from the main regression equation on the variables in question.

Glejser test

The Glejser test is only valid when the random error is symmetrically distributed; a number of modifications exist for skewed errors.
