Scoring and Reporting

Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-Adolescent Restructured Form™ (MMPI-A-RF™) - Scoring and Reporting

The Score and Interpretive Reports provide raw and T scores for all 48 empirically validated scales of the MMPI-A-RF. Comparative means and standard deviations from one of 10 different standard settings, or a custom comparison group, can optionally be reported.

Score Report

  • Six validity scales offer reliable measures of random responding, fixed responding, over-reporting, and under-reporting—enabling clinicians to comprehensively assess protocol validity.
  • Higher-Order Scales assess the three over-arching dimensions of psychopathology: Emotional Internalising Dysfunction (EID), Thought Dysfunction (THD), and Behavioural/Externalising Dysfunction (BXD).
  • Somatic/Cognitive and Internalising Scales include measures of self-reported poor health and specific somatic and cognitive complaints as well as measures of emotional dysfunction.
  • Externalising, Interpersonal, and Interest Scales provide measures of behavioural dysfunction; measures of specific types of interpersonal dysfunction; and measures of two types of general interests.
  • Updated from the MMPI-A, Harkness and McNulty's PSY-5 Scales provide a temperament-oriented perspective on major dimensions of personality pathology.
