# Normal fitting test using the Henry line¶

In this example we are going to perform a visual goodness-of-fit test for an univariate normal distribution using the Henry line test, which is the QQ plot adapted for Gaussian distirbutions.

distribution = ot.Normal(2.0, 0.5)

# Draw Henry line plot for a Beta (bad)
sample2 = ot.Beta(0.7, 1.6, 0.0, 2.0).getSample(100)
ot.VisualTest_DrawHenryLine(sample2)
