Hsu, "Performance of primary school children in Taiwan on Berry's Developmental Test of visual-motor integration," 1997
Hsiao-Yin Hsu, M.A.
The purposes of this study were to compare VMI performance of Taiwanese children with the 1989 American normative data, and to examine the concurrent validity of the VMI with Taiwanese children in relation to gender and chronological age.
A total of 151 children in suburban Taipei in grades 1, 4 and 6 were administered the VMI. In contrast to previous research, the results of this study suggest that Taiwanese children do not perform significantly better than American norms on the VMI. This indicates that the VMI American norm-referenced scores might be applied meaningfully to Taiwanese children in grades 1, 4, and 6.
The high correlation between VMI raw score and age, as well as no gender difference in VMI performance in Taiwanese children, indicate that the VMI is a valid developmental test when used with Taiwanese children.
