Abstract
Visual.Motor Integration (VMI) test, designed by Beery, is one of the battery, which is commomly used in investigating the developmental status of child. As the test was designed for American children, the test may be not feasible for Korean children because of difference of cultural back. ground, race as well as econornic status. 1674 normal Korean children aged from 5 to 12 were tested by VMI test exactly me as Beery described to evaluate validity of the test for Korean children The VMI age of Korean Children was average one year advanced compare to the original VMI age. Score of Korean children representing the relation of these two values was Y= 1.040X+ 1.046 (r=0. 742, p< 0.0001) in male child and Y= 1.003X+ 1.550 (r=0.711, p<0.0001) in female. As conclusion, the VMI test of Beery should be redesign for the usage as a battery of Korean children.
