Background/Aims: To establish the norms for the substitution task, a measure of psychomotor performance.
Materials and Methods: Eight hundred and forty three school students were selected in the present study aged between 9-16 years (mean age = 12.14; SD = 1.77). Subjects were assessed one at a time for Digit-Letter Substitution Task (DLST).
Results: Both age and sex influenced performance on the DLST; therefore, correction scores were obtained on the basis of these factors.
Conclusions: The availability of the Indian normative data for the DLST will allow wider application of this test in clinical practice.
