Abstract:

3rd place 2008 Disseration Award -Melanie completed her dissertation at Fordham University under the supervision of Barry Rosenfeld.
Atkins has stimulated concern about ruling out malingering in offenders claiming mental retardation. In this study comparing honest individuals with genuine mental retardation to simulators, the DCT misclassified many honest respondents, while the SIRS tended to misclassify those with comorbid psychopathology. The TOMM misclassified the fewest honest respondents, and a model combining it with the SIRS correctly classified almost all participants. Measures were not correlated with each other or with estimated IQ. Cutoff scores were suggested to optimize specificity when using these measures in Atkins contexts. These cutoffs substantially decreased sensitivity for the DCT and SIRS but not the TOMM.
