dc.description.abstract The current study explores the rates of valid and invalid MMPI-2 protocols across testing conditions, as well as the test taker's preference for each format and the amount of time spent responding to the items. Participants were 203 undergraduate students (90 men and 113 women) from a Midwestern university. Participants completed either a CC or P&P version of the MMPI-2 along with a supplemental survey to assess for participants' testing format preference. Overall, results suggest that while testing format did not affect the number of valid MMPI-2 protocols produced, the CC version was rated more favorably by participants and took significantly less time to complete.
