The Purdue Pegboard measures gross movements of hands, fingers and arms, and fingertip dexterity as necessary in assembly tasks.

The pegboard is designed with two parallel rows of 25 holes, into which the metal pegs are placed by the subject. The test involves a total of four trials. To begin, there is a brief practice. The subsets for preferred, non-preferred, and both hands require the subject to fill the holes as quickly as possible. The score recorded is the number of pins placed in 30 seconds.

It can be used for various testing applications such as:

  • Physical Therapy
  • Occupational Health
  • Vocational Evaluation
  • Pre-employment Screening.

Each pegboard comes complete with pins, collars and washers. It is also supplied with an examiner’s manual with norms.
