The TVPS-3 is an easy to use assessment to determine the visual perceptual strengths and weaknesses of students. Visual perception is an important ability that enables one to make sense out of what is seen (in contrast to visual acuity tests which determine just that something was seen). The TVPS-3 utilises black and white line drawings as stimuli for all of the perceptual tasks; the stimulus plates are bound in a convenient easel-style booklet. The items are presented in a multiple-choice format, and responses can be made vocally (by saying the letter of the response choice) or by pointing to the answer choice. This format is ideal for use with students who may have impairments in motor, speech, hearing, neurological, or cognitive functions.

The test is untimed and takes about 25 minutes with 16 plates in each of the perceptual areas:

  • Visual Discrimination
  • Visual Memory
  • Visual Spacial Relationships
  • Form Constancy
  • Visual Sequential Memory
  • Figure-Ground
  • Visual Closure

Ceilings ensure that the more difficult items do not unduly tax younger students, yet enable the examiner to obtain a reliable and accurate measurement of the students' abilities at all ages.

By analysing the subtest score patterns, the examiner makes functional comparisons of the child's abilities and provides a basis for planning the appropriate remediation. The manual contains an updated review of literature pertaining to the importance of visual perceptual ability to the tasks a child faces in both school and home settings. The TVPS-3 also provides new, stratified norms on over 2000 students.

The TVPS Kit contains the manual, test plates and 25 record forms.
