The three-state test (3ST) is a method based on ordinal pattern analysis for detecting chaos and determining the period in time series. For some well known chaotic dynamical systems, we showed that the test behaves similar to Lyapunov exponents. However, the 3ST is detecting quasi-periodic motions both as regular and non-regular. In this paper, we propose to use the sensitivity of its chaos indicator λ on time delay for clear discernment between quasi-periodic and chaotic dynamics. Simulation results obtained using the logistic map and the sine-circle map attest that the sensitivity of λ on time delay is sufficient for the detection of the periodic and quasi-periodic route to chaos. A comparison with the permutation entropy confirms the effectiveness of the 3ST for the analysis of discrete time series data.
