Purpose: Assesses an individual’s visual perceptual abilities
Age: 4 through to 94 yrs
Time: 25 minutes
The MVPT-3 is a major revision of the MVPT-R, utilising both the original plates and new test plates that add additional challenge for those over 11. The MVPT-3 assesses an individual’s visual perceptual abilities without any motor involvement needed to make a response. It is especially useful with those who may have learning, motor, or cognitive disabilities.
The MVPT-3 features new norms based on a nationally representative sample. An added, optional, feature of the MVPT-3 is response time norms, often used in rehabilitation settings. The test can be used for screening, diagnostic and research purposes.
Administration and Scoring:
The MVPT-3 takes approx. 25 minutes to administer. The horizontal, multiple-choice item format of earlier versions has been retained. Test plates are contained in one easy-to-use book with an easel back. Test administration cues are provided on the record form to facilitate testing. Scoring is extremely easy; no basals or ceilings are needed. Raw scores are quickly converted to standard scores and percentile ranks.
