The Bruininks Motor Ability Test (BMAT) is an individually administered, standardised test of gross and fine motor skills for adults. It's an adaptation of the trusted Bruininks-Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency, Second Edition (BOT™-2), widely used for ages 4 - 21. The BMAT can assist rehabilitation professionals to determine whether clients’ motor function issues need to be addressed before they can live independently. The BMAT can also help with goal setting and progress monitoring - you can repeat administrations over the course of treatment and adjust goals as needed.

Comprehensive, stand-alone subtests

For maximum flexibility, you can administer all the subtests or focus on one or two specific motor skill areas as each subtest has the content, reliability, validity, and sensitivity to stand on its own. Subtests include:

  • Fine Motor Integration
  • Manual Dexterity
  • Coordination
  • Balance and Mobility
  • Strength and Flexibility

Each subtest can be administered in as little as 15 minutes.  Scoring consists of three composites—Fine Motor, Gross Motor, and Total Motor. Also included is the Short Form that offers a quick measure of overall motor ability in just 20 minutes.

A built-in dashboard makes administration easy

An Administration Easel provides an at-a-glance dashboard with a detailed description of how to administer and score each item. Included are verbatim instructions and illustrative photos for the examiner and examinee.
