Undergraduate Research: MMPI-3 scales are similar in-person and virtual

One of my fantastic undergraduates conducted a study using existing MMPI-3 study data (Morris et al., 2021; Reeves et al., 2022) to compare the effectiveness of the over-reporting scales across in person and virtual administrations. Given the guidelines put out about telehealth assessment (Corey & Ben-Porath, 2020) and the expanding research on general comparative effects of virtual psychological interventions, we expected that the scales would perform equally. Indeed, that was what we found. One implication of our findings is that future meta-analyses of the MMPI-3 validity scales will likely not need to consider this element of study design as a potential moderator for scale effectiveness.
