I’m thrilled to have another paper out with the fantastic Dr. Pat Armistead-Jehle which focuses on validity assessment and scale effectiveness. It is still in press so no formal PDFS yet, but it will appear in Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology. As the first step to interpretation of substantive scale use, validation of validity efforts remains a critical step to effective clinical assessment. There remains a paucity of work on memory complaint SVTs relative to other domains of over-reporting (e.g., psychopathology; see Sweet et al., 2021), and the Memory Complaints Inventory (MCI) by Paul Green is the leading measure which does so independent of broadband personality assessment. However, no work had related performance on this instrument to the PAI, despite their frequent concurrent use in neuropsychological evaluations. I provide cut score effectiveness on the MCI using the CBS scale (the PAI’s cognitive SVT) below.
