Goodness of fit tests indicate whether or not it is reasonable to assume that a random sample comes from a specific distribution.

"They are a form of hypothesis testing where the null and alternative hypotheses are:

H0: Sample data come from the stated distribution
HA: Sample data do not come from the stated distribution

These tests are sometimes called omnibus tests.
