Detecting Dissimulation in Personality Test Scores: A Comparison between Person-Fit Indices and Detection Scales.
Ferrando, Pere J.; Chico, Eliseo
Educational and Psychological Measurement, v61 n6 p997-1012 Dec 2001
Examined whether a procedure based on item response theory (IRT) for assessing the scalability of response patterns could detect deliberate dissimulation (faking good) on scores from three tests of the Eysenck Personality Questionnaire Revised. Results for 489 and 140 undergraduates show that IRT measures were not powerful enough to detect dissimulation but the Lie and Social Desirability scales of the measure performed better. (SLD)
