Formatted Abstract/Summary
Background and Purpose: The current research utilized Rasch analysis to examine the dimensional structures of the Peabody Motor Developmental Scales-Second Edition (PDMS-2). The number of scoring points and the item hierarchy of the PDMS-2 were also examined for their usefulness in discriminating various levels of motor development and whether the PDMS-2 items were positioned in a valid hierarchy of difficulty.

Conclusions: The measurement properties, including dimensionality, scoring scales, and item hierarchies of the PDMS-2 have been validated with the Rasch model to facilitate its clinical usage for infants and preschool children.
