The Assessment of Motor and Process Skills (AMPS) is an innovative observational assessment that is used to measure the quality of a person's performance of domestic (instrumental) or personal activities of daily living (ADL). The quality of ADL performance is assessed by rating the effort, efficiency, safety, and independence of 16 ADL motor and 20 ADL process skill items. The ADL motor and ADL process skill items represent universal, goal directed actions that are observed during ADL task performances. ADL motor skills are the observable, goal directed actions of performance that the person enacts during the performance of ADL tasks to move oneself or the task objects (e.g., walk across the floor, transport objects, reach for and manipulate objects, position the body). ADL process skills are the observable actions of performance the person enacts to logically sequence the actions of the ADL task performance over time, select and use appropriate tools and materials, and adapt his or her performance when problems are encountered (e.g., initiate and sequence actions, choose and gather task objects, accommodate actions when problems occur).
