This article reviews some techniques to measure magnetic ordering and to probe phase transitions and structural order in magnetic alloys. These impact on the classification and identification of magnetic phase transitions. The techniques include calorimetric probes of magnetic phase transitions, thermomagnetic measurements, and ancillary structural probes of magnetic order.
