In this paper, we introduced an extension of the Marshall-Olkin Extended Topp-Leone distribution using the quadratic rank transmutation map (QRTM). Statistical properties of the proposed distribution are examined and its parameter estimates are obtained using the maximum likelihood method. A real data set defined on a unit interval is employed to illustrate the usefulness of the proposed distribution among existing distributions with bounded support.
