Straightforward and easy to administer, the MVP is the first stand-along Performance Validity Test (PVT) specifically designed for, and nationally standardized on, and validated for individuals ages 5-21 years.  It is also the first PVT with age-adjusted cutoff scores, to minimize false positives in younger children.

There are no motor requirements.  The MVP can be administered to youth with motor or visual impairments, as well as those with development, or acquired cognitive, academic or behavioral concerns.

The MVP consists of two subtests—Visual and Verbal.  Each subtest is divided into two brief item sets, with the second set perceived as progressively more challenging than the first.  The Visual subtest yields an MVP Visual score; the Verbal subtest yields an MVP Verbal score.  When combined, these scores make up the overall MVP Total score.

MVP cutoff scores were calibrated based on the state-of-the-art in PVT development, including binomial probability theory, performance in healthy youth and 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.

The MVP Kit includes 25 MVP Record Forms, the Professional Manual with Fast Guide and a Stimulus Book.
