The Purdue Pegboard Test was originally developed in the 1940s as a test of manipulative dexterity. Now it is the industry standard in measuring the gross movements of hands (hand dexterity), fingers (unimanual and bimanual) and arms as well as finger-tip dexterity. The Purdue Pegboard Test has also proved useful in the assessment of motor deficits. The test board consists of two parallel rows of 25 holes each. Pins (pegs), collars and washers are placed in cups at the top of the testing board. Tests are standardized and timed as subjects are tasked with placing as many pegs in the holes as possible within the time limit. The test comes complete with pegboard, 55 pins, 25 collars, 45 washers, instructions, a pad of scoring sheets, an examiner’s manual and accepted norms. The testing board is constructed of plastic, it’s easy to clean with warm soapy water and a damp cloth.
