Visual perceptual skills are often assessed using paper-and-pencil tests such as the Motor-Free Visual Perception Test, 3rd Edition (MVPT-3). A computer-based version of this assessment was independently developed. This study aimed to establish its reliability by comparing scores of 3rd grade children at a local private school on each of the two testing mediums using a test-retest method. A strong correlation of age adjusted raw scores on the two testing mediums were anticipated, which would indicate that the computer-based version of the MVPT-3 is as reliable as the paper-based version. The current study found inconclusive results after correlational analysis, but results showed that 72.5% of participants received clinically comparable results. Clinically comparable results indicate that within the practical settings which this assessment may be utilized, the practitioner administering the assessment would offer similar recommendations. Regarding participants who did not receive clinically comparable results, assessment medium order is associated with incomparable scores. These results support the C-MVPT-III as a reliable and valid tool.
