Product Details

The Movement Assessment Battery for Children–Third Edition (Movement ABC-3) provides an objective measurement of gross and fine motor coordination difficulties in children and young adults aged 3 – 25 years.

Movement ABC-3 Benefits:

  • Identify delay or impairment in motor development
  • Plan intervention
  • Measure change and monitor progress over time
  • Widely known and respected for use in research related to motor development
  • Gain a holistic picture of motor performance using the Checklists to complement observational assessment

The Movement ABC-3 updates include:

  • Revised and updated test content and items
  • New manipulatives
  • Extended age range down to 3 and up to 25
  • Co-collected sample between the UK and ANZ
  • Unified contructs across ages

The Movement ABC-3 has three subtests: 

  • Manual Dexterity
  • Aiming & Catching
  • Balance & Locomotion

There are also separate Checklists for each age band:

  • Parent/Teacher/Other
  • Self (age band 3 only)

Component benefits:

  • Identify delay or impairment in motor development 
  • Plan intervention 
  • Measure change and monitor progress over time 
  • Widely known and respected for use in research related to motor development 
  • Gain a holistic picture of motor performance using the Checklists to complement observational assessment 

Component features:

  • Norms based on a sample of 1279 collected jointly in the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand
  • Extensive international research built over the previous version of the assessment and this version - featuring in over 500 studies
  • Numerous translations worldwide

Test content and structure

The test contains 10 tasks for each of 3 age ranges: 3 – 6 years (3-year-olds complete 7 tasks); 7 – 11 years and 12 – 25 years. The tasks cover the following 3 domains: 

  • Manual Dexterity 
  • Aiming & Catching (ball skills) 
  • Balance & Locomotion

Task, domain, and Total Motor scores are provided. A profile of a child’s performance over the different sections of the test can be examined and a ‘traffic light’ system helps map areas of strength and concern. 

The assessment is paralleled by an observational approach to perceptual-motor aspects and emotional and motivational difficulties the individual may have in relation to motor tasks. 

The Movement ABC-3 Checklists

The Movement ABC-3 Checklists provide a means for assessing movement in everyday situations in which the child or young adult participates.

Use the Checklist to: 

  • Assess groups of students in classroom situations 
  • Obtain parents’ or teachers’ views on an individual’s movement in everyday settings 
  • Measure the extent to which a young person’s attitudes and feelings about motor tasks are situation specific or more generalised 
  • Ascertain the impact of motor difficulties on an individual’s participation in everyday activities 

Digital administration and scoring options

The Movement ABC-3 Test is administered using paper record forms. The Movement ABC-3 Checklist can be administered using either paper or digital administration. Online scoring is available via Pearson’s Q-global® online assessment platform.
