Beery VMI

Developmental Test of Visual-motor integration
What is the Beery VMI??
Visual-Motor: The degree to which visual perception and finger-hand movement are well coordinated
Application of the
Beery VMI
History of the Beery VMI
Keith Beery
First called "Developmental Forms Sequence"
Published in 1967
Internship at a kids psychiatric clinic
Created the Beery test in 1961
Sequence of 24 forms
Normed in 1964
Beery VMI

Visual motor integration as a necessary prerequisite
Transfer must be taught
Tracing can be valuable learning activity
... A Little More History
Beery-Buktenica Developmental Test of Visual Motor Integration
Visual Motor Integration
geometric forms on paper with pencil
Visual Perception
Looking at a series of pictures and identifying which one matches the example
Motor Coordination
Draw lines through paths
(Beery, 2010)
Why perform the Berry VMI
Help identify significant difficulties in visual-motor integration
Obtain needed services
Assess the effectiveness of educational and intervention programs
Serves as a research tool
With Whom do you administer the Beery?
30 Item full form
Ages 2-100
21 Item short form
Used mostly by children ages 2-7
WHERE should you perform the Beery Test?
If you are re-evaluating, you should try and test in the SAME place you did the initial evaluation
Individual assessment is best, but group testing is an option
HOW do you SCORE the Beery VMI?
ONE point
for each imitated or copied item until
THREE consecutive
failures have been reached
using standards
and the individuals
, you can determine:
Standard Score
Scaled Score
Raw Score
To obtain a raw score: the number of items that are NOT successfully completed prior to this ceiling of three consecutive failures is subtracted from the ceiling
EX: Child fails items 5, 8, and 11-13, the raw score is 13-5=8
Scores have a mean of 100 and a standard deviation of 15
WHO can administer the Beery VMI?
Must provide credentials
Bachelors degree in psychology, education, human relations/resources, or business

Individual administration of Beery VMI
Individuals under functional age 5:
Begin on task 4, page 2
Individuals at or over the functional age of 5 and adults
Start on task 7, Page 4
Administration of Visual Perception Test
You will need a stopwatch or timepiece with a second hand
Children under functional age 5
Start with Task 1
"where is your eye? Point to your eye"
"Touch the kitty"
"Touch the doll's hair"
Children at or Over functional age 5 and Adults
Start with task 4
(Beery, 2010)
Administration of Motor Coordination
Task 1- climbs into and sits in adult chair without help
Task 2- Holds pencil with thumb and fingertips
Task 3- Holds paper with one hand and scribbles with other
Begin Motor Coordination Test
(Beery, 2010)
What are the Limitations?
Sequence tests:
1. Beery VMI
2. Visual Perception
3. Motor Coordination
If you change the order, norms are affected
Re-administer too soon produces a practice effect
Norms may be invalid if directions are not followed
Norms have remained steady since the first edition was published
Correlations have been virtually perfect; the correlation between 1 point and 4 point scoring is .99
