In this paper, we introduce a new method to improve the power of the chi-square test for goodness of fit (GOF) of logistic distribution under selective order ranked Set sampling (RSS) based on minimum, median and maximum as compared to simple random sampling (SRS). Based on a simulation study, we illustrate that the chi-square test is found to be more powerful under selective order RSS when compared to SRS, particularly for minimum and maximum. However, for the case of median RSS, the test is found to be more powerful under SRS. To investigate these results further, the Kullback- Leibler information (KLI) is applied and similar results are found. Keywords: Goodness of fit test, chi-square test, logistic distribution, ranked set sample, simple random sample.
