Performance Tests

Scope Note: 
Tests that require the manipulation of objects or skilled bodily movements (Note: Do not confuse with "Nonverbal Tests," which minimize the use of language but may not emphasize the manipulation of objects or skilled movement -- prior to Mar80, the use of this term was not restricted by a Scope Note -- use "Performance Based Assessment" for "higher-order" performance testing)
