The Wide Range Assessment of Visual Motor Abilities (WRAVMA)

The Wide Range Assessment of Visual Motor Abilities (WRAVMA; Adams & Sheslow, 1995) consists of three subtests: Visual-Motor, Visual-Spatial, and Fine-Motor, that can be given to students ages 3 to 17 years in 15 to 25 minutes.

Overview

The Visual-Motor test presents designs to be copied by the student. The Visual-Spatial test is a matching test that asks the student to select the option that “goes best” with the given figure. The Fine-Motor test requires the student to insert as many pegs as possible into a pegboard in 90 seconds. By giving all three subtests, it is possible to determine if visual motor difficulties are the result of problems with spatial skills, motor skills, or an integration of the two.
