Purdue Pegboard Test

Some therapy clinics offer this test as part of their services.

The Purdue Pegboard Test was first developed in 1948. Since then, this device has been used extensively to aid in the selection of employees for jobs that require fine and gross motor dexterity and coordination. It measures gross movements of hands, fingers, and arms, and fingertip dexterity as necessary in assembly tasks. The pegboard is complete with pins, collars, and washers and an examiners manual with norms.
