Understanding animal movement is an important challenge in ecology, with improvement in tagging technology permitting the collection of data on an increasingly wide range of species. Consequently, methodologies for statistical analysis of such data has received considerable attention in recent years. Discrete-time random walks are the foundation of the movement data models. The advantages of the discrete-time movement models are that they are intuitive and easily implemented, however the specification of the discretization step is often problematic and must be done in advance. Misspecification of the discretization step might lead to a model mismatch and thus choosing an appropriate test statistic to capture the model mismatch is essential.
