    The assessment of breakdown probabilities is examined by the up-and-down method. The exact maximum-likelihood estimates for a number of response patterns are calculated for three different distribution functions and are compared with the estimates corresponding to the normal distribution. Estimates of the 50% probability breakdown voltage, and of the scale parameter of the breakdown probability functions, are investigated
