3 Considerations for Testing Encourage maximum effort.Get to know each student.Provide effective demonstrations.Avoid potentially embarrassing situations.Test in a nonthreatening environment.Practice or simulate testing conditions.Recognize contraindicated (injurious) activities.
4 Uses of Psychomotor Tests Provide valid measurements.Classify students.Include item as a part of a more comprehensive set of tests.Assess performance to predict potential in particular activities.Motivate students to higher levels of skills performance.
5 Uses of Psychomotor Tests (continued) Determine student achievement and grades.Developing class profiles.Assess instructional effectiveness in a specific unit of instruction.Supplement and enrich class instruction.Diagnose motor deficiencies.
