The Purdue Pegboard: norms and studies of reliability and validity
The Purdue Pegboard is a test of manipulative dexterity designed to assist in the selection of employees in such industrial jobs as assemblying, packing, operation of certain machines, and other routine manual jobs of an exacting nature. Five separate test scores may be obtained: right hand; left hand; both hands; right plus left plus both hands; and assembly. Administration and scoring directions as well as norms for college men and women, male veterans, and male and female industrial applicants are included. Reliability studies with various groups and scores on the Purdue Pegboard yielded correlations ranging from .60 to .91. Validity coefficients on 14 studies ranged from .07 to .76, depending on the score used, the job, and the criterion.
