Abstract:

Valid symptom report and test performance are essentialprerequisites for the accurate interpretation of neurocognitive or neuropsychologicalassessment data. Unfortunately, base rates of invalid responding in civilian and militarycontexts suggest that symptom exaggeration and underperformance are common in thesetypes of assessments. Many response validity tests RVTs have been developed andderived to detect invalid responding, but these measures are limited by lengthyadministration times, limited sensitivity, and susceptibility to coaching.. This dissertationproject evaluated a novel eye-tracking tool, the Bethesda Eye and Attention MeasureBEAM, as a method for detecting invalid responding in neurocognitive assessment.
