Test

The event of a price movement that approaches a support level or a resistance level established earlier by the market. A test is passed if prices do not go below the support or resistance level, and the test is failed if prices go on to new lows or highs.

test

The attempt by a stock price or a stock market average to break through a support level or a resistance level. For example, a stock that has declined to $20 on several occasions without moving lower may be expected to test this support level once again. Failing to fall below $20 one more time would be considered a successful test of the support level and a bullish sign for the stock.

Schirmer's Test is a simple test that determines the amount of watery fluid produced by the lacrimal glands.
In this context, the modified Schirmer's test was capable of detecting different mean values for both LS and PS flow rates among groups (Table 2) and between subjects with and without xerostomia complaint (Table 3).
Schirmer's test was 9.1 5.7 in the first visit 10.6 5.3 in the second visit and 11.84.1 in the third visit (p-value less than 0.05).The above results showed a significant difference in the ocular symptoms between the visits.

Although eye dryness was frequently reported, Schirmer's test, TBUT, and corneal fluorescein staining scores were almost always within normal limits.
At each visit, all patients underwent a detailed ophthalmologic examination including best corrected visual acuity measurement, slit-lamp anterior segment examination, and tear film break-up time (BUT) and Schirmer's tests. Patients' signs and symptoms were scored on a scale of 0-4 points based on their severity before treatment and at their last follow-up visit.

Nineteen male, adult mongrel dogs between 2 and 4 years of age, average weight between 8 and 14 kg were selected after physical (inspection; Schirmer's test I; biomicroscopy; aplanation tonometry; fluoresceine test) and complementary exams (hemogram and biochemical).
All subjects underwent complete ophthalmic evaluations, which included the following tests performed in the order of pain score, SPEED questionnaire [16], visual acuity, corneal topography, slit lamp examination, fluorescein staining (oxford scale), tear film breakup time (TFBUT), corneal sensitivity, Schirmer's test, MMP9 test, central corneal in vivo confocal microscopy, and DEWS scoring as detailed below.
