You no longer have to piece together different tests, standardized on different populations, in order to get a comprehensive evaluation of a child’s visual–motor skills. The WRAVMA lets you assess and compare visual–spatial, fine motor, and integrated visual–motor skills using norms gathered from the same sample.
Designed for 3- to 17-year-olds, WRAVMA includes three subtests, which can be used individually or in combination:
• The Drawing Test measures visual–motor integration by asking the child to copy designs that are arranged in order of increasing difficulty.
• The Matching Test assesses visual–spatial skills by asking the child to look at a visual “standard” and select the option that “goes best” with it. Again, items are arranged in order of increasing difficulty.
• The Pegboard Test evaluates fine motor skills by asking the child to insert as many pegs as possible, within 90 seconds, into a waffled pegboard. Norms are provided for both dominant and nondominant hands.
Each test requires just 4 to 10 minutes, and each provides a scaled score, standard score, age equivalent, and percentile score. Norms are based on a nationally representative sample of more than 2,600 children.
Offering attractive materials, easy administration, and sound psychometric properties, the WRAVMA is an excellent choice for assessing visual–motor ability.
