The current version includes two forms for the Beery VMI and two supplemental subsections, motor coordination and visual perception. The supplemental tests may be administered after results from the VMI test indicate the need for further assessment in order to separate an individual’s pure motor and visual abilities. For the VMI, examinees are administered either a 21-item short form or a 30-item long form; each requires copying geometric forms that become increasingly complex. The short form is designed for use with children aged 2–7 years, and the long form for individuals up to age 100. The long form takes approximately 10–15 min to administer, and the short form takes approximately 10 min. The test may...
