Number Grade Word/Letter Grade Definition
0 Zero (0) No muscle contraction can be seen or felt.
1 Trace (T) Contraction can be observed or felt, but there is no motion.
2− Poor minus (P−) Part moves through incomplete ROM with gravity minimized.
2 Poor (P) Part moves through complete ROM with gravity minimized.
2+ Poor plus (P+) Part moves through less than 50% of available ROM against gravity or through complete ROM with gravity minimized against slight resistance.
3− Fair minus (F−) Part moves through more than 50% of available ROM against gravity.
3 Fair (F) Part moves through complete ROM against gravity.
3+ Fair plus (F+) Part moves through complete ROM against gravity and slight resistance.
4 Good (G) Part moves through complete ROM against gravity and moderate resistance.
5 Normal (N) Part moves through complete ROM against gravity and maximal resistance.
