  • The original MMPI was developed by Starke R. Hathaway and J. C. McKinley, faculty of the University of Minnesota, and first published by the University of Minnesota Press in 1943. (wikipedia.org)
  • scales
  • The MMPI-2 is designed with 10 clinical scales which assess 10 major categories of abnormal human behavior, and four validity scales, which assess the person's general test-taking attitude and whether they answered the items on the test in a truthful and accurate manner. (brainmass.com)
  • While there are dozens of additional content scales that have been independently developed around the MMPI-2, these are the core 10 scales used by the test. (brainmass.com)
  • These items were subsequently found to be very highly correlated with a wide range of measurement scales, MMPI personality and diagnostic scales. (wikipedia.org)
  • For example, this adjustment is performed automatically in the standard scoring of MMPI scales. (wikipedia.org)
  • Restructuring the Clinical Scales was the initial step toward addressing the remaining psychometric and theoretical problems of the MMPI-2. (wikipedia.org)
  • The MMPI-2-RF was constructed using a similar rationale used to create the Restructured Clinical (RC) Scales. (wikipedia.org)
  • over 53,000 correlations based on more than 600 reference criteria are available in the MMPI-2-RF Technical Manual for the purpose of comparing the validity and reliability of MMPI-2-RF scales with those of the MMPI-2 Across multiple studies and as supported in the technical manual, the MMPI-2-RF performs as good as or, in many cases, better than the MMPI-2. (wikipedia.org)
  • All of the MMPI-2-RF's scales demonstrate either increased or equivalent construct and criterion validity compared to their MMPI-2 counterparts Current versions of the test (MMPI-2 and MMPI-2-RF) can be completed on optical scan forms or administered directly to individuals on the computer. (wikipedia.org)
  • The MMPI-2 can generate a Score Report or an Extended Score Report, which includes the Restructured Clinical Scales from which the Restructured Form was later developed. (wikipedia.org)
  • The MMPI-2 Extended Score Report includes scores on the Original Clinical Scales as well as Content, Supplementary, and other subscales of potential interest to clinicians. (wikipedia.org)
  • Items
  • The entire measure reconstruction was accomplished using the original 567 items contained in the MMPI-2 item pool. (wikipedia.org)
  • Profile
  • The three steps are the initial interview, preparing for the feedback session (which includes interpreting the MMPI-2 profile), and the feedback session. (wikipedia.org)
  • work
  • He began his work with the MMPI during his graduate training at the University of North Carolina in the 1960s. (ecampus.com)
