This short paper demonstrates that the use of temporally   aggregated data may affect  the power of the  well known functional specification  Ramsey’s RESET test. This tests is widely used  for testing the functional specification of a model.

Using Monte Carlo techniques, we found  that temporal aggregation could affect seriously the power and the size  of the test.
