It was developed by Marianne Frostig and colleagues in the early s, and first standardised in But has much really changed? You can find the “official” list of changes on the publisher’s website, so I’m not going to repeat that, but instead share my experience.

DTVP-2 vs DTVP A Worthwhile Upgrade?

My workplace has purchased the DTVP-3 at the start of At first glance, it appeared to me that the packaging had just been made more colourful, and a few of the subtests removed. However, having now used it, I am thankful for the small changes that have made the assessment much easier to administer. Not only has removal of three subtests Position in Space, Spatial Relations, and Visual-Motor Speed meant shorter administration time, the change in order has helped test administration run more smoothly.

No longer do we need to switch between the response booklet and the stimulus booklet for each subtest. The layout of the Examiner record form has become much more user-friendly. It now includes the standard wording for explaining the tasks, and the responses are much easier to instantly mark correct or incorrect by the bolding of correct responses.


Although this assessment has been around a long time, we are yet to have international standardisation.

The DTVP-3 boasts impressive reliability and “is shown to be unbiased relative to race, gender, and handedness. Now there is no component taking into account the speed of visual-motor integration tasks. Is speed of completion relevant in assessing proficiency?

I used to get frustrated marking these, as the marking criteria was very strict about where the feostig marks were allowed to be.

I felt the children were losing marks unfairly, as the aim of the Speed subtest is to mark as many correct shapes as possible, but an otherwise correct answer wouldn’t vtvp-2 if the mark protruded outside the shape. Visual-Motor Speed and Spatial Relations Not only has removal of three subtests Position in Space, Spatial Relations, and Visual-Motor Speed meant shorter administration time, the change in order has helped test administration run more smoothly.


There is now more space between items. Some of the pictures in the Eye-Hand Coordination Subtest have changed, fairly inconsequentially.

The Copying Subtest has been reordered to better reflect the developmental progression of drawing skills. Scoring this subtest has also been much improved with provision of a Scoring Template, which includes all the necessary angles and measuring lines for accurate scoring. It now includes the letters corresponding to the answers, under each figure. I’ve found it useful to double-check sometimes if the child points too quickly by saying “was that ‘B’ and ‘F’? Updated layout of Stimulus Booklet The Visual Closure subtest has been frositg to include more simpler items at the early stages, with more difficult items moved toward the back.

As frostlg in the example below, the layout has been improved. This item has been moved from fourth place to sixth, with easier items inserted beforehand, to more closely follow the developmental progression i.

The subtest has been expanded from 20 items to I find this very convenient, because the same assessment can be used in early primary school, and again for comparison around the age of transition to high school.
