Product Details

BOT-2 covers a broad array of fine and gross motor skills, providing six composite scores and one comprehensive measure of overall motor proficiency.


  • Assess the motor proficiency of all children, ranging from those who are typically developing to those with mild to moderate motor control problems.
  • Support diagnosis of motor impairments.
  • Screen individuals who may have certain deficits in motor ability and who might benefit from further evaluation or interventions.
  • Make educational placement decisions.
  • Develop and evaluate motor training programs.


Occupational therapists, special education professionals, physical therapists, developmental adaptive physical education teachers, and other professionals use BOT assessment.

  • High-quality manipulatives (including a wide, durable balance beam); large, clear pictures in the administration easel that help children better understand the activities you are asking them to perform; and engaging, game-like tasks.
  • Short form for use as a screening tool for overall motor proficiency.
  • Separate fine motor and gross motor kits available.
  • Fine motor kit includes Fine Motor Precision, Fine Motor Integration, Manual Dexterity, and Upper-Limb Coordination subtests.
  • Gross motor kit includes Bilateral Coordination, Balance, Running Speed and Agility, and Strength subtests.

Frequently asked questions follow. Click on a question to see the response.

What is the recommended minimum interval for re-assessment using the BOT-2 family of assessments?

The minimum recommended interval for reassessment with the BOT-2 is 3 months or more. The test-retest data gathered during development of the BOT-2 show minimal mean differences with an average retest interval of 19-20 days, and average test score differences in the test-retest study are well below the SEms. The differences beyond 2-3 months are likely to represent developmental or skill gains, especially at lower age levels. It is very unlikely that practice effects would influence the BOT-2 scores, since it is a performance based test without a guessing component, and the items are not used for practice during the interval between tests.

How do I obtain the Fine Motor Composite Score, or the Gross Motor Composite Scores?

In addition to the complete BOT-2 kit, the BOT-2 is also now available as separate Fine-Motor and Gross Motor Kits, with dedicated Fine-Motor and Gross-Motor forms. If you have a complete kit, and wish to obtain separate Fine-Motor and Gross Motor scores you will need the Manual Supplement for the BOT-2 Fine Motor Form and Gross Motor Form. This manual supplement is now included in the BOT-2 complete kit, but can also be purchased separately; see item 58046 (Manual Supplement for the BOT-2 Fine Motor Form and Gross Motor Form) in the pricing and ordering section of the website.

Why do you no longer sell software based scoring and reporting using Assist?

In response to customer feedback the BOT-2 is now available on Q-global® - Pearson’s web-based administration, scoring and reporting system. In line with the Assist software, unlimited scoring subscriptions are available for 1, 3, or 5 years; this is in addition to a per-report price. Please see the pricing section for full details.
