demonstrating to the test subject what is expected of him or her before each test. Test Batteries and Timing The test administrator will compile 5 separate scores from the complete test procedure, one for each test battery: 1. Right Hand (30 seconds) 2. Left Hand (30 seconds) 3. Both Hands (30 seconds) 4. Right + Left + Both Hands (Note: This is not an actual test; it is a mathematical sum calculation.) 5. Assembly (60 seconds) The test batteries should be done in this consecutive order, unless the subject is left-handed, where test batteries 1 and 2 are reversed: Left Hand first and then Right Hand. Three test trials are highly recommended: the more trials administered, the more test score reliability. Note: The test is well suited for either group or individual testing. Equipment Required The following equipment and supplies are required to ensure that the Lafayette Instrument Purdue Pegboard Test is consistent, standardized test: 1. Purdue Pegboard Test (Model #32020A) Instruction Manual 1 Test Board Pins, Collars, Washers Score Sheets or Scoring Application (see page 7 for details) 2.

Lafayette Instrument Purdue Pegboard Test PO Box 5729 Lafayette, IN 47903 USA . Phone: (765) 423-1505 4 Test Procedures General Instructions The subject should be comfortably seated at the testing table directly in front of the Purdue Pegboard, which is placed on the table with the row of cups (Under the nameplate) at the top of the board. The far right and far left cups should have 25 pins in each to equal a total of 50 pins. For right-handed subjects, the cup to the left of center should have 40 washers. If the subject is left-handed, the collar and washer locations should be on the reverse side of center. The following directions are for single subject testing and should be appropriately modified for group testing. When the subject(s) is seated and ready to begin, say: “This is a test to see how quickly and accurately you can work with your hands. Before you begin each battery of the test, you will be told what to do and then you will have an opportunity to practice. Be sure you understand exactly what to do.” Right Hand (30 seconds) Begin by saying and demonstrating: “Pick up one pin at a time with your right hand from the right-handed cup. Starting with the top hole, place each pin in the right-handed row. (Leave the pin used for demonstration in the hole.) Now you may insert a few pins for practice. If during the testing time you drop a pin, do not stop to pick it up. Simply continue by picking another pin out of the cup.” Correct any errors made in placing the pins and answer any questions. When the subject has inserted three or four pins and appears to understand the operation, say: “Stop. Now take out the practice pins and put them back into the right-handed cup.” After the subject completes this task, say: “When I say ‘Begin,’ place as many pins as possible in the right-handed row, starting with the top hole. Work as rapidly as you can until I say ‘Stop.’ Are you ready?

    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.
