A t test, proposed by Ogawa and based on the use of a few sample quantiles selected from large samples, is considered for testing the hypothesis H0: ¿1 = ¿2 against the hypothesis H1: ¿1 ¿ ¿2 concerning the location parameters ¿1 and ¿2 of two extreme-value distributions with common unknown scale parameter ¿. Tables that simplify the calculation of the test statistic and an example illustrating their use are provided.
