Completely updated and built into PAR’s brand-new software interface, the MMPI-A Interpretive System provides comprehensive interpretive hypotheses for your client’s MMPI-A results and generates unlimited reports. Not a scoring program, the MMPI-A Interpretive System provides clinical interpretation based on T scores entered from a scored MMPI-A protocol. Each report includes comprehensive information on profile validity, probable symptoms, treatment issues and suggestions, and possible diagnostic considerations; individual scale interpretations and configural information for commonly occurring 2- and 3-point codetypes; and an estimate of the degree to which the client’s profile matches the profile database and characteristics for a given profile type.

Improvements and updates

  • Generates unlimited reports.
  • Prototypical profile means were drawn from a larger database of MMPI-A protocols and represent a broader range of settings, including medical, forensic, substance abuse, educational, and clinical.
  • Interpretations for the 31 Content Component scales and the PSY-5 scales were added, to be consistent with updated MMPI-A materials.
  • The report was updated to be consistent with the latest empirical findings and to be more concise and readable.
  • As before, data can be imported from Pearson Assessment’s Q Local scoring system automatically and without program modification.
