Lafayette Hand Tool Dexterity Test
Measure proficiency in using ordinary mechanic's tools
Formerly know as the Bennett Hand Tool Dexterity Test. This test measures proficiency in using ordinary mechanical tools. The test consists of tools and two uprights with bolts. The object is to disassemble all the bolts from one upright and reassemble them on corresponding rows of the other upright with the heads of the bolts inside. This type of skill is important in many different factory jobs, in industrial apprentice training, and in servicing many types of instrumentation.
This test also evaluates medium dexterity, standing with some bending, sustained neck flexion, sustained horizontal reaching, bilateral light to moderate pushing/pulling, torque with hand tools, and bilateral fingering.
Results of the test have been used to determine vocational interest and as an indicator of success where job / tasks require the use of these or similar tools. Reference literature suggests the use of this test to assess performance when hands will be covered when using the tools incorporated in this test.
