The Test of Visual Perceptual Skills - 4th Edition (TVPS-4) is a comprehensive assessment of visual analysis and processing skills used for determining visual-perceptual strengths and weaknesses.
The TVPS-4 utilises black-and-white line drawings, bound in a convenient easel-style booklet. The items are presented in a multiple-choice format, requiring only minimal verbal or motor (pointing) responses, making it ideal for use with individuals who have impairments in motor, speech, neurological, or cognitive functions.
Ceilings minimise fatigue and ensure that more difficult items do not unduly tax younger students, while allowing for reliable and accurate assessment across the age range.
NEW to this edition:
- Additional lower-level items were added to address the needs of younger or more impaired individuals
- Norms now extend through to 21 years of age, making the TVPS-4 useful for a wider range of examinees.
- Now includes 18 items in each of the seven perceptual areas.
- Measures the following Cattell-Horm-Carroll theory narrow abilities: Visualisation, Flexibility of Closure, Visual Memory and Memory Span.
Scoring is quick and uncomplicated. Raw scores are reported as scaled scores and percentile ranks for each subtest; the overall total score is reported as a standard score and percentile rank. Age equivalents are also provided for the subtest and overall scores.
