Assessment and evaluation in motor behavior are key components or systematic processes of
gathering and interpreting information about a student.
Background: Assessment and evaluation in motor behavior are key components or systematic processes of
gathering and interpreting information about a student. Motor development tests evaluate progression of typical
motor functioning on a continuum. The use of developmental norms assumes that comparing the performance of
a student with disabilities against norms for typical development is appropriate, and deviations from the norm are
indicative of a delay or problem in development or are associated with a physical or cognitive disability. It is
important that teachers, health professions, and physical therapists quickly determine which students qualify for
special service/treatment, what is the development stages, or risks of developmental delays by using various
assessment and evaluation procedure. You can use The Affordances in the Home Environment for Motor Development-Infant Scale, ASQ-3, TGMD-3, Bruininks- Oseretsky Motor Proficiency Assessment 2, The Movement Assessment Battery for Children (MABC) for this case study.
Instruction: You may know some families/parents with children with/wo disabilities who are seeking an informal
assessment toward the daily motor functioning/development stage and looking for potential recommendations and
suggestions for the treatment/intervention. In this assignment, you will think about a sample case (individual child
aged between 3–16-year-old) and conduct an informal assessment using one age-appropriate instrument/scale
regarding the development stage/problems/delays in the area of obesity, physical activity, motor skill, and/or
social-emotional skill (1-2 areas can be covered); and write a summary report with potential recommendations
and suggestions to the family/parents.
Case Study Assessment Report Includes:
Introduction (1-2 pages):
1) You will define the problems/diseases that are apparent in your child of choice in detail.
2) You will build the rationale for why an assessment needs to be conducted for this child.
3) Describe the characteristics (demographic, behavioral, problems, medical history) of this child or any
previous diagnoses. It is suggested to have some physical measures such as height/weight, BMI as the
fundamental patient information to be included in the report. You may take pictures in the process of your
assessment which may be used in the final poster presentation. You also can include the picture in the
case study assessment report if needed.
Description of the Scale you choose to use for assessment (2-3 pages):
1) Introduce the scale/instrument you choose for this child’s assessment.
2) Describe the assessment protocols (procedures, equipment, instructions, scaling, scoring, other
3) Report the results of your child through a screen shot of the scoring sheet or in a graph/table.
Summary and Discussion (2-3 pages):
1) Summarize the overall results or problems that have been identified based on your assessment
a. Go into discussion here talking about the implications of each finding in the subset of your
assessments (depending on which one you chose).
2) Identify the solution or recommendations for improvement or potential intervention to make
improvements (if any) for your case. Please provide the references/citation if your
recommendation/suggestion are based on reliable outside resources.
