Detailed Description+

Assesses fine motor abilities through static and dynamic tasks for finger, hand and arm movement.
The MLS is a modular test based on Fleishman’s factor analysis of fine motor skills; it assesses six aspects of these skills. Good fine motor skills are needed in many occupations and sports. A nuanced assessment of the various skills is therefore important for suitability assessments in these fields (manufacturing & safety assessments) and for clinical neuropsychological investigations. This test battery yields a wide range of information: accuracy of movement, steadiness/tremor, precision of arm/hand movement, manual dexterity and finger dexterity, speed of arm and hand movements and wrist/finger speed.

Test forms+

S1: Standard form according to Schoppe & Hamster
S2: Short form according to Sturm & Büssing

Task+

Administration of the MLS requires the MLS Work Panel.
The respondent performs a number of different tasks using the work panel. The tasks may be performed with one or both hands.

Scoring+

The ability is assessed separately for the right and left hand for one-handed and two-handed performance. The following variables are scored:

  • Aiming: Measure of eye-hand coordination and the precision of arm-hand movements.
  • Steadiness: Measures a person’s ability to adopt a particular arm/hand position and maintain it with as little change as possible for a relatively long period of time.
  • Line tracing: Precision of arm-hand movements – measure of precise fine motor skills and the precision of information processing.
  • Tapping: Wrist-finger speed – measure of the speed of untargeted movements.
  • Inserting long pins and inserting short pins: Speed of arm-hand movements – measure of eye-hand coordination and the speed of targeted movements.
