Normality test for Directional Distribution tool?

I am anticipating a question in class this week about the Directional Distribution (Standard Deviational Ellipse) tool.

 

I will be pointing out that when you use a standard deviational ellipse and make a statement that 68% of the population is inside the one-stdev ellipse, you are assuming a bivariate normal distribution.  I haven’t seen a KS or Shapiro Wilks test in the software to test for normality in the point pattern. Would this be possible or even appropriate?
