This score does not have to be recorded during the actual testing period. The Assembly test may begin immediately after the Both Hands score is recorded. Assembly (1 minute) This test battery consists of assembling pins, collars, and washers. Demonstrate the following operations while saying: “Pick up one pin from the right-handed cup with your right hand. While you are placing it in the top hole in the right-handed row, pick up a washer with your left hand. As soon as the pin has been placed, drop the washer over the pin. While the washer is being placed over the pin with you left hand, pick up a collar with your right hand. While the collar is being dropped over the pin, pick up another washer with your left hand and drop it over the collar. This completes the first ‘assembly,’ consisting of a pin, a washer, a collar, and a washer. While the final washer for the first assembly is being placed with your left hand, start the second assembly immediately by picking up another pin with your right hand. Place it in the next hole; drop a washer over it with your left hand, and so on, completing another assembly. Now take a moment to try a few practice assemblies.” Emphasize that both hands should be operating at all times: one picking up a pin, one a washer, one a collar, and so on, The subject should be allowed to make four or five complete assemblies before the test is begun to make certain the subject fully understands the “alternating” procedure. The subject must keep both hands moving at the same time. If he or she fails to do this, the administrator should give further instructions. Note: If the subject is left-handed, the washer and collar locations in the cups are switched. The subject begins by picking up the pin with his/her left hand, the washer with his/her right hand, the collar with his/her left hand, another washer with his/her right hand and so on through all assemblies. After the subject has practiced the assemblies say: “Stop. Now return the pins, collars, and washers to their proper cups.” Then say: “When I say ‘Begin,’ make as many assemblies as possible, beginning with the top hole. Work quickly until I say ‘Stop.’” Start timing when you say “Begin.” After exactly 1 minute (60 seconds), say: “Stop.”

Model 32020A User’s Manual [email protected] . Count the number of parts assembled and record the Assembly score. Since there are four parts in each assembly, if the subject made eight complete assemblies, the score is 8 multiplied by 4 (parts), or 32. Beyond completed assemblies, if there are additional parts properly placed at the end of the minute, they are also added to the Assembly score. For example, if there is another pin and first washer in addition to those 2 parts, the score is 32 + 2, or 34. After the test administrator records this score, the subject should return the pins, collars, and washers to the proper cups.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
