Product Details

The new BOT-2 Brief Form was developed to address the need for a brief version of the BOT assessment. It includes 12 items consisting of at least one item from each BOT-2 subtest. When a screening or program evaluation tool is required, the Brief Form can be used to determine the need for further assessment.

Administering all 53 items on the comprehensive BOT-2 provides the most reliable measure of overall motor proficiency, enabling a comprehensive investigation of an examinee’s strengths and weaknesses.


  • Quick and easy to administer.
  • Yields a single score of overall motor proficiency.
  • Requires fewer manipulatives.



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 re-test 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 Formin the pricing and ordering section of the website.
