We investigate the finite-sample properties of certain procedures which employ the novel notion of the probability weighted empirical characteristic function. The procedures considered are: (1) Testing for symmetry in regression, (2) Testing for multivariate normality with independent observations, and (3) Testing for multivariate normality of random effects in mixed models. Along with the new tests alternative methods based on the ordinary empirical characteristic function as well as other more well known procedures are implemented for the purpose of comparison
