Only 25–35 minutes to administer by computer, and 35–50 minutes to administer by paper and pencil.

Comprehensive administration manual

The Manual for Administration, Scoring, and Interpretation provides a brief description of the background for and development of the MMPI-3, a description of the new normative sample, case illustrations, and standard procedures for administering, scoring, and interpretation.

Comprehensive technical manual

The Technical Manual describes the rationale for developing the test, the procedures used to fashion the scales and collect the new test norms, descriptive findings on the scales in a broad range of settings, and extensive psychometric findings. These findings include scale score reliability estimates as well as standard errors of measurement and empirical correlates in mental health, medical, forensic, public safety, and other nonclinical settings.
