Quick Neurological Screening Test – Third Edition (QNST-3)

The Quick Neurological Screening Test – Third Edition (QNST-3; Mutti, Martin, Sterling & Spaulding, 2012) is a norm-referenced screening assessment of the development of motor coordination and sensory integration.

Overview

The Quick Neurological Screening Test is designed to be used for students age 5 and older, and can be given in approximately 20 to 30 minutes. Raw scores are interpreted in terms of functional categories. The QNST-3 is designed to screen for neurological soft signs that may indicate challenges in motor coordination, daily functioning, and learning.

The examinee completes a series of motor tasks sampling maturity of motor development, skill in controlling large and small muscles, motor planning and sequencing, sense of rate and rhythm, spatial organization, visual and auditory perceptual skills, and disorders of attention.
