Abstract Objective. Visual perception is a skill area commonly assessed by occupational therapists. Three newly revised tests of visual perception include the Developmental Test of Visual Perceptual Skills (Non-Motor)-Adolescent and Adult (DTVP-A), the Motor-Free Visual Perception Test-Third Edition (MVPT-3), and the Test of Visual Perceptual Skills-Third Edition (TVPS-3). The aim of this study was to investigate the concurrent validity of these three adult visual perceptual tests. Methods. Fifty healthy participants, aged 18-55 years, completed the DTVP-A, MVPT-3, and TVPS-3. Spearman rho correlation coefficients were used to evaluate the relationships among the three tests. Results. The total scale score correlations for the DTVP-A, MVPT-3, and TVPS-3 ranged from 0.39 to 0.51. Conclusion. The three tests exhibited a moderate level of correlation, supporting the concurrent validity of the DTVP-A, MVPT-3, and TVPS-3.
