6th Edition VMI?

Hi there

We have been using the Beery VMI (5th Edition) and wondered if anyone is using the 6th edition and if so, what's it like?!!  Do we need to be upgrading to the 6th edition?

Any info appreciated!

  1. The test booklets are basically the same as far as I can tell, but I would recommend getting an updated manual as I believe some of the normed data has changed (for standardized results).

  2. The Beery VMI includes updated norms for ages 2 through 18. Adult norms are also included for age 19 and above, but were not updated. Updated reports of medical, neuropsychological, international, and other important advances in the use of the Beery VMI in recent years have also been included.

    In this edition, the child and adult forms have been combined into one, making it more convenient for those who work with clients of varying ages. Existing forms can continue to be used since the test content has not changed, however, a new Beery VMI, 6th Edition manual should be ordered to obtain the most up-to-date information.
