    The Bartlett-type adjustment is a higher-order asymptotic method for improving the chi-squared approximation to the null distributions of various test statistics. Though three influential papers were published in 1991—Chandra and Mukerjee (1991) [8], Cordeiro and Ferrari (1991) [12] and Taniguchi (1991) [36] in alphabetical order, the only CF-approach has been frequently applied in the literature during the last two decades, provided that asymptotic expansion for the null distribution of a given test statistic is available. Revisiting the CM/T-approaches developed in the absence of a nuisance parameter, this paper suggests general adjustments for a class of test statistics that includes, in particular, the likelihood ratio, Rao’s and Wald’s test statistics in the presence of a nuisance parameter.
