Test of Handwriting Skills-Revised

by Michael Milone

Item: 8439-7

Age Range: 6 - 18+
Testing Time: 25 minutes
Administration: Individual

The THS-R is an untimed, clinical assessment of neurosensory integration skills evident in handwriting (both manuscript and cursive) that are often disrupted in students with learning difficulties. The THS-R provides standardised assessment of children’s handwriting ability for both manuscript and cursive styles that can be used with any of the popular handwriting programmes (such as Palmer, Zaner-Bloser, D’Nealian). The THS-R is not a classroom assessment of penmanship.

Results of the THS-R can be used to:

  • identify neurosensory integration problems
  • monitor progress of students with disabilities
  • determine if neurosensory integration difficulties are contributing to students’ learning problems
  • guide instructional or rehabilitation practices

Changes to the new edition include:

  • norms extended through age 18 (manuscript and cursive)
  • nationally stratified norms
  • simplified scoring procedures
  • clarified scoring criteria
  • handwriting exemplars that reflect current styles including D’Nealian, Handwriting Without Tears, Universal, and Zaner-Bloser
  • abbreviated administration procedures
  • scoring examples
  • scoring training video

Testing and scoring time approximately 25 minutes. The Manual now provides guidance on how the THS-R can be used for progress monitoring. Also included is a video tutorial to assist practitioners in the scoring process. Subtest scores are reported as scaled scores and percentile ranks, and an Overall standard score has been added. The THS-R was normed on 1,500 U.S. individuals.
