Description: The MMPI-2 Adult Interpretive System Version 4 provides the clinician with comprehensive interpretations for the MMPI-2 and the MMPI-2 Restructured Form (MMPI-2-RF). The program offers three interpretive reports for the MMPI-2, including a Codetype Report (similar to the MMPI-2-RF, a Content-Based Report, and a Codetype/Content-Based Report. A Content-Based report is offered for the MMPI-2-RF. All reports include information on the potential impact of demographic factors, assessment of specific Dangerousness to Self and Other items, and a description of test-taking behaviours (e.g., omissions, accuracy of endorsement). The MMPI-2 AIS V4 does not score the MMPI-2 or the MMPI-2-RF; rather, it offers interpretations based on scores that are manually input (or imported from Pearson score reports) into the program.

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. Item-level interpretive text must be edited based on client’s responses. The Codetype Report also contains graphical depictions of the observed and prototypical profiles and a scale-by-scale listing of interpretive text based on T scores.

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. Content-Based Reports also include graphical profiles of the scores.
