Measure the quality of a student’s schoolwork task performance. The School AMPS will transform your occupational therapy practice by keeping you focused on occupation.
Administering the School AMPS
The School AMPS takes less than one hour to administer and score, resulting in a reliable and valid measure of a student’s quality of schoolwork task performance.
- Observe a student in his or her classroom performing at least two schoolwork tasks that have been assigned by the teacher
- Score the quality of 36 performance skills that the student enacted while working on each task
- Use the OTAP software to generate a School AMPS Results Report that includes the student’s School AMPS measures and percentile ranks
- Plan interventions, develop goals, write documentation, and provide evidence of change in a student’s schoolwork tasks

“I have had several positive comments from fellow special educators on how much they like the School AMPS and how they feel they gain valuable information from it.”
“This assessment has really enhanced and expanded my skills as an OT in the school.”
