In this paper, we produced a study in Estimation for parameters of the Kumaraswamy distribution based on general progressive type II censoring. These estimates are derived using the maximum likelihood and Bayesian approaches. In the Bayesian approach, the two parameters are assumed to be random variables and estimators for the parameters are obtained using the well known squared error loss (SEL) function. The findings are illustrated with actual and computer generated data.
