Currently two methods are available. For continuous data the clasical lack-of-fit test is applied (Bates and Watts, 1988). The test compares the dose-response model to a more general ANOVA model using an approximate F-test. For quantal data the crude goodness-of-fit test based on Pearson's statistic is used.

None of these tests are very powerful. A significant test result is more alarming than a non-significant one.

An object of class 'anova' which will be displayed in much the same way as an ordinary ANOVA table.
