3 Movement Competence Body Management Fundamental Skills
Locomotor Nonlocomotor Manipulative Specialized Skills Higher Skill Attainment

4 Considerations for Testing
Provide encouragement and incentive. Know your students. Perform good demonstrations. Avoid embarrassing situations. Create a nonthreatening environment. Experience the test (teachers). Recognize contraindicated activities.

5 Uses of Psychomotor Tests
Provides valid measurement. Classifies students into groups. Obtain a composite profile. Assess performance and potential. Motivate students to improve. Determine achievement and grades.
