The SIMS is a 75-item, true-or-false screening instrument that assesses both malingered psychopathology and neuropsychological symptoms.
The SIMS-SP provides an Interpretive Report based on either an on-screen administration of the SIMS or hand-entry of an individual’s item responses or scale raw scores.
All SIMS materials, including the manual, have been translated into European Spanish and designed especially for Spanish-speaking clinicians and their clients. Normative data were collected primarily in Spain, with additional data collected in some Latin American countries. Certain test items and stimuli in this translation vary from the English version because of cultural and linguistic differences between the countries and their language. Learn more or order.
A comprehensive list of research articles related to the SIMS is available via Mendeley, a free reference management tool. After accessing the link, you will be prompted to create an account. A white paper describing how to use this research repository can be found here. Use of this resource is encouraged to facilitate research using the SIMS. Both the list and the white paper are available in the Resources tab above.
