Developed to determine the presence and degree of visual-motor issues; identify candidates for remediation or visual-motor training; monitor the progress of progressive degenerative diseases; and evaluate the effectiveness of intervention efforts the KOPPITZ has been recently revised. The KOPPITZ-2 has been updated to include an expanded age range with additional norms and improved reliability and is suitable for those ages 5 to 85.
The KOPPITZ-2 includes the following characteristics:
How to Use the Assessment
- New norms based on a nationally representative sample of 3,600 people.
- Separate scoring systems for young children (ages 5 to 7 years) and older children and adults (ages 8 to 85+ years).
- The addition of two- and three-dimensional drawings for older children and adults -- drawings that can reveal subtle visual-motor integration deficits.
- A completely nonverbal format that makes the test appropriate for individuals from all cultural and ethnic backgrounds
- High reliability across age, gender, and ethnicity.
- Detailed scoring guidelines that insure high interscorer reliability.
- A variety of scores -- standard scores, percentile ranks, specialized scores, and age equivalents -- to meet the needs of all practitioners.
- A separate section of the Manual explaining how to use KOPPITZ Emotional Indicators (EIs) and a specialized form for this purpose.
The KOPPITZ-2 takes between 5 and 10 minutes, and is administered by a clinician. The respondent is required to draw figures from the Bender designs on a plain sheet of paper that become increasingly more complex. The respondent is also expected to organize the task independently. Back to the top
