The Motor-Free Visual Perception Test: Third edition (MVPT-3; Colarusso & Hammill, 2003) purports to measure overall visual perceptual ability. Task responses require no motor ability, eliminating the effect of motor performance on the overall visual perception score. The test authors suggested that this MVPT-3 characteristic allows for its use in the assessment of visual perceptual ability in motorically impaired individuals. This individually administered test is designed for children, adolescents, and adults ranging from 4 through 95 plus years. The purpose of this instrument is to provide an alternative measure of visual perception. Typical visual perception measures include motoric responses and tasks (e.g., copying or tracing) that ultimately assess both visual and motor abilities. The MVPT-3 seeks to produce an isolated measure of visual perceptual ability independent of motoric capability. This article describes the administration and scoring of MVPT-3 and its technical adequacy. This article also provides a review of MVPT-3.
