Scoring and reporting

Revised Personnel Intepretive Report

The most comprehensive report, the Interpretive Report includes these important elements to help support selection for high-risk, high-stress positions:

Revised narrative section. Developed by noted MMPI-2 test expert James N. Butcher, PhD, the narrative section is tailored to each occupation. Organized to address the questions most relevant in employment selection, the revised narrative section now includes: 

  • Profile Validity
  • Personal Adjustment
  • Profile Frequency
  • Interpersonal Relations
  • Profile Stability
  • Possible Employment Problems
  • Content Themes
  • Work Dysfunction Items

More than 100 MMPI-2 scales. The report provides a profile or listing of scores for more than 100 MMPI-2 scales, including validity scales, clinical scales, clinical subscales, content scales, content component scales, and supplementary scales. Included are the more recently introduced validity indicators FP (Infrequency-Psychopathology) and S (Superlative Self-Presentation) and new supplementary scales PSY-5 (Personality Psychopathology-Five) and Ho (Hostility). 

Eight validity scales. The report includes all eight MMPI-2 validity scales. The scales are profiled together for more convenient evaluation.

Nongendered norms. Nongendered T-scores are reported for the clinical and content scales to provide additional comparative information.

Profile stability and profile frequency data. The report presents occupation-specific profile stability and profile frequency data based on statistical information from more than 18,000 cases. Comparisons to normative and occupational samples help provide a clearer understanding of the applicant's profile.

Addiction potential scales. These scales present incisive information related to alcohol and drug addiction and potential for addiction. All three substance abuse scales (MAC-R, AAS, and APS) are conveniently profiled together. Plus, you select how the information is reported. You can use standard cut-offs or more stringent cut-offs, or you can suppress all information relating to addiction potential—even the scale scores.

Work dysfunction items. Work dysfunction items are reported for clinician follow-up in areas that may be significant in understanding an applicant’s work performance. These items, which compare the applicant’s endorsements to both the normative and personnel samples, have been found to be related to dysfunctional attitudes or negative behavior in various employment situations.

  • Stress Tolerance
  • Overall Adjustment

The report also includes these important features:
