Overview

The MMPI®-3 is a contemporary personality assessment for mental health, medical, forensic, and public safety settings. This newest version builds on the history and strengths of the MMPI instruments to provide an empirically validated, psychometrically up-to-date standard for psychological assessment.

 

Key features

New, nationally representative English language normative sample

Updated for the first time since the mid-1980s and designed to match US Census Bureau demographic projections for 2020, the MMPI-3 normative sample includes 1,620 individuals (810 men and 810 women) ages 18 and older from diverse communities throughout the United States.

 

New and updated items and scales 

The MMPI-3 includes 72 new and 24 updated items used to develop new scales (Eating Concerns, Compulsivity, Impulsivity, and Self-Importance) and to update existing MMPI-2-RF scales.

Comparison groups

Descriptive data from a broad range of settings make it possible to compare an individual’s test results with relevant groups in mental health, medical, forensic, and public safety settings.

Administration time

Only 25–35 minutes to administer by computer, and 35–50 minutes to administer by paper and pencil.

 

Comprehensive administration manual

The Manual for Administration, Scoring, and Interpretation provides a brief description of the background for and development of the MMPI-3, a description of the new normative sample, case illustrations, and standard procedures for administering, scoring, and interpretation.

 

Comprehensive technical manual

The Technical Manual describes the rationale for developing the test, the procedures used to fashion the scales and collect the new test norms, descriptive findings on the scales in a broad range of settings, and extensive psychometric findings. These findings include scale score reliability estimates as well as standard errors of measurement and empirical correlates in mental health, medical, forensic, public safety, and other nonclinical settings.

 

MMPI-2-RF literature appropriate for MMPI-3 interpretation

Detailed analyses reported in the Technical Manual indicate that interpretation of the updated MMPI-3 scales can be guided by over 450 peer-reviewed MMPI-2-RF publications.
