Now there’s a tool for evaluating handwriting that addresses manuscript and D’Nealian print

Use the Minnesota Handwriting Assessment with first and second grade students to analyze handwriting skills, including standard manuscript and D’Nealian styles of print. This test has normative information, substantiating its test/retest reliability.

Use the test to identify how students are performing in relationship to their peers. It also demonstrates progress as a result of intervention. Scores are based on rate and five quality categories—

  • Legibility
  • Form
  • Alignment
  • Size
  • Spacing

Test students individually or in groups.
