The MMPI-2 AIS V4 provides comprehensive interpretations for a client’s MMPI-2 and/or MMPI-2 Restructured Form (MMPI-2-RF®) results. Three interpretive reports are offered for the MMPI-2 (a Codetype Report, a Content-Based Report, and a Codetype/Content-Based Report), and one Content-Based Report is offered for the MMPI-2-RF. The MMPI-2 AIS V4 does not score the MMPI-2 or the MMPI-2-RF; rather, it offers interpretation based on scores that are manually input (or imported from Pearson score reports) into the program. For optimal customization, item-level interpretive text should be edited.

Features and benefits

  • All MMPI-2 reports include T-score-level interpretive text of validity scales, clinical scales, Harris and Lingoes scales, restructured clinical scales, content and content component scales, supplementary scales, and PSY-5 scales.
  • The MMPI-2-RF report includes T-score-level interpretive text of validity scales, higher-order scales, restructured clinical scales, somatic/cognitive scales, internalizing scales, externalizing scales, interpersonal scales, interest scales, and PSY-5-r scales.
  • Data can be easily imported from Q Local or from the MMPI-2 AIS Version 3.
  • All reports include information on the potential impact of demographic factors, assessment of specific Dangerousness to Self and Others items, and a description of test-taking behaviors (e.g., omissions, accuracy of endorsement).
  • The MMPI-2 AIS Codetype Report (and the codetype portion of the combination report) provides an empirically derived prototypic profile based on “goodness-of-fit” with the client’s observed MMPI-2 scores; a client’s MMPI-2 profile is matched to one of 381 prototypic profiles with accompanying interpretive text. 
  • New to Version 4, the Content-Based Reports promote a shared frame of reference between the client and the clinician that, if utilized by both, defines the assessment as a collaborative process. It includes descriptions of the client’s moods, cognitions, interpersonal relations, and other problem areas.
  • The Symptom Validity Scale (FBS) has been added to the list of observed scores in the reports.
  • The Professional Manual has been updated to include two new chapters, which assist in the interpretation of the Content-Based Reports and provide case examples.
  • Also available—the MMPI Interpretive System, Version 5.0 allows you to obtain comprehensive hypotheses for scored MMPI-A protocols.
