Third Edition By: Nancy A. Martin, PhD

This TVMS assesses how well a person can coordinate visually guided fine-motor movements to copy a design while it is in sight. The TVMS-3 is used to determine whether there are any systematic distortions or gross inaccuracies in the copied design that could be the result of deficits in visual perception, motor planning, and/or execution. The test utilizes a simplified scoring system and no longer uses a protractor. A single test replaces the two levels of the 2nd version (TVMS-R and TVMS-UL), making the test easier to administrate and more economical. The TVMS-3 was normed on 2610 individuals.

The TVMS-3 is untimed, but takes about 35 minutes to administer. The test consists of copying 39 geometric designs of increasing complexity. The individual is asked to reproduce each design as closely as possible but may not sketch or trace the designs, nor attempt more than one copy of each.

Results are expressed as a general accuracy standard score and an analysis of errors seen in the copied designs. The manual contains detailed descriptions and exemplars of actual test results obtained during the norming study, showing the error types and scoring guidemines. The scoring sheet has a built-in guide to the types of errors possible on each design.

Nine types of errors are identified: Incorrect closure; Line length; Addition or Deletion of a Part; Incorrect Angle; Line Connection; Rotation or Reversal; Line Quality; Modification of Size or Part; Shape Overlap Error

Analysis of the types of errors made provides a detailed evaluation of visual-motor skills. Results can be reported as standard scores, percentile ranks, or age equivalents. When used along with a test of visual perception, the tests can differentiate between primarily visual-motor impairment and a perceptual difficulty. Overall accuracy score and analysis of copying errors are easily obtained.
Kit Includes: Manual, 15 Test Booklets and 15 Record Forms
