Validating a dexterity test
All participants will complete a test with all four interventions.Furthermore, a test-retest trial will be conducted on 4 test-subjects.
Predictors include information from application blanks (education level, experience, and so on) and reference checks; scores on tests of skill, ability, or aptitude; data from interest and personality inventories; and interviewer ratings of an applicant.This test can also be used to document patient progress and/or degree of disability.Vocational evaluators use the Minnesota Manual Dexterity Test to determine a subject’s ability and aptitude for certain work related applications and for recommending job placement that requires manual dexterity.Criterion measures are any measures of work behavior, job products, or outcomes that have value to an employer.Job success is an abstract concept that means different things to different employers.The purpose of this study is to measure test-retest reliability and validate the star shaped test of manual dexterity.
The purpose of this is to see if there is any significant learning effect, and if the test can discriminate between individuals who are at their normal skill level, and when they are stressed and/or fatigued.
this is done 10 times, 5 times clockwise and 5 times counter clockwise.
Each time the scissors come into contact with the border of the track, an error is counted. As a randomized crossover study, we will have 20 test subjects complete the test 4 times.
Includes carrying case, manual, record blanks, and norms.
The Minnesota Manual Dexterity Test can be used for many testing applications.
Selection methods are valid to the extent that predictors measure or are significantly related to work behavior, job products, or outcomes.
