Summary

    About This Product

    The MVP is the first performance validity test (PVT) specifically designed for and nationally standardized on children, adolescents, and young adults. It is conormed with the Child and Adolescent Memory Profile (ChAMP), which provides comprehensive information about learning and memory and an embedded indicator of validity. Age-adjusted cutoff scores minimize false positives in younger children, and because there are no motor requirements, it can be administered to individuals with varying abilities.

    Administering the MVP is easy and straightforward. It consists of two 16-item subtests: Visual and Verbal. Each subtest is divided into two eight-item sets; the second set is progressively more challenging than the first. Visual subtest items are contained in the Stimulus Book, and the Record Form contains instructions for administering each subtest.

    MVP cutoff scores were calibrated based on the state-of-the-art in PVT development, including binomial probability theory, performance in healthy youths and in clinical samples, and an invalid performance sample. In a study conducted during development, MVP cutoff scores had 100% sensitivity and 100% specificity in detecting feigned memory impairment.
