Occupational therapists often administer tests to patients that assess their dexterity and eye-hand coordination. Several test standards and corresponding products have been created to be used for evaluating career skills. Pegboard tests and other dexterity tests can help occupational therapists understand the skill level of a patient who is seeking employment. Pegboard tests are also often used by staffing agencies and human resources departments to screen applicants, especially for manufacturing jobs.
