Assesses motor planning and execution processes during computer mouse use.
This test is particularly useful in clinical neuropsychology as a pre-test for tests that require familiarity with the use of the mouse. To ensure that testing is fair and valid, competence in using the computer mouse should not be assumed but should be verified with the Mouse Ability Test – especially when administering tests with a speed component.
