Buktenica, have established adequate norms for visual motor performance by children in various age groups. Most shapes in the VMI, after the triangle, are unique, complex, and novel. Five teaching tools offer activities and exercises that help teachers respond to VMI results:.

Standard scores, percentiles, age equivalents. Developmentall results of this study add to the current research suggesting that the VMI may not be an effective outcome measure for handwriting interventions Howe et al. Backed by decades of research and clinical use, the Berry VMI offers a convenient integratiion economical way to screen for visual-motor deficits that can lead to learning, behavior, and neuropsychological problems.

Now includes a CD that allows you to print copies of the activities. Some visual construction tests are designed to test memory by asking the child to draw a familiar object. The Manual presents very clear scoring criteria, standard scores, percentiles, and teaching suggestions. If a child has only one integratiln to copy a shape that he or she has seen only once before in pretest conditionschances of error are much higher than would be expected if the child had practiced the shape.


Test—retest reliability for legibility is. Paired and independent-samples t tests were used to analyze group differences.

Precautions There are no precautions involved in visual motor testing. Significant changes in VMI scores were noted in the typically developing students involved in this study Bazyk et al.

Although the available literature seems to indicate that the VMI should not be used as an outcome measure when examining handwriting and related interventions, further research is needed to confirm these results. There is no media. Interrater reliability ranges from.
