Bruininks-Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency (BOTMP-BOT-2) [Bruininks, 1978; Bruininks and Bruininks, 2005]
The Bruininks-Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency (BOTMP) and its review the Bruininks-Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency, second edition (BOT-2) are tools to assess fine and gross movement skill development.
The fine motor skills of children are often measured by occupational therapists with the Bruininks-Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency, Second Edition (BOT-2; Bruininks & Bruininks, 2005), the Peabody Developmental Motor Scales, Second Edition (PDMS-2; Folio & Fewell, 2000), or the Miller Function and Participation Scales (MFUN; Miller, 2006).
The BOT-2 also displays a moderate relationship with the previous version of the BOT-2, the Bruininks-Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency (r = .60) for the fine motor composites, moderate to strong correlations with the Peabody Developmental Motor Scales, Second Edition (r = .51 to r = .75), and a correlation of r = .74 to the Test of Visual-Motor Skills-Revised for the Visual-Motor Skills composite (Bruininks & Bruininks, 2005).
In terms of psychometric properties, van Hartingsveldt, de Groot, Aarts, and Nijhuis-van der Sanden (2011) found that the Beery VMI--along with the Bruininks-Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency, 2nd edition (BOT-2) (Bruininks & Bruininks, 2005)--stood out among other instruments assessing writing readiness.
