Article
Background: The Post-Concussion Symptom Scale (PCSS) is a self-report questionnaire measuring symptoms that commonly occur after a concussion; however, these symptoms are nonspecific and can be related to co-occurring orthopaedic injuries (eg, cervical strain) or patient characteristics and preexisting conditions, even in the absence of a recent i...
Article
Objective: Prior factor analyses have supported the multidimensionality of post-concussion symptoms, but the symptom total score is often interpreted alone in practice. This study examined the added value of norm-referenced post-concussion symptom subscales to detect different subtypes of symptom presentations following concussion. Method: Adolesce...

Objective: To assess the prevalence of invalid performance on baseline neurocognitive testing using embedded measures within computerized tests and individually administered neuropsychological measures, and to examine the influence of incentive status and performance validity on neuropsychological test scores. Setting: Sport-related concussion m...
Article
Full-text available
This study was designed to investigate the effects of timing on the likelihood of failing the Recognition Memory Test–Words (RMT) and Word Choice Test (WCT). The RMT and WCT were administered in counterbalanced order either at the beginning (Time 1) or at the end (Time 2) of a test battery to a mixed clinical sample of 196 patients (M<sub>age</sub>...

Importance Estimated base rates of invalid performance on baseline testing (base rates of failure) for the management of sport-related concussion range from 6.1% to 40.0%, depending on the validity indicator used. The instability of this key measure represents a challenge in the clinical interpretation of test results that could undermine the utili...
Article
Full-text available
This study was designed to develop performance validity indicators embedded within the Delis-Kaplan Executive Function Systems (D-KEFS) version of the Stroop task. Archival data from a mixed clinical sample of 132 patients (50% male; MAge= 43.4; MEducation= 14.1) clinically referred for neuropsychological assessment were analyzed. Criterion measure...

This study was designed to examine the clinical utility of critical items within the Recognition Memory Test (RMT) and the Word Choice Test (WCT). Archival data were collected from a mixed clinical sample of 202 patients clinically referred for neuropsychological testing (54.5% male; mean age ¼ 45.3 years; mean level of education ¼ 13.9 years). The...
Article
Full-text available
Introduction: The Recognition Memory Test (RMT) and Word Choice Test (WCT) are structurally similar, but psychometrically different. Previous research demonstrated that adding a time-to-completion cutoff improved the classification accuracy of the RMT. However, the contribution of WCT time-cutoffs to improve the detection of invalid responding has...
Poster
Full-text available
The current study sought to determine the rate of concussive and affective symptom reporting at preseason baseline and to examine potential differences by sex and sport in a Canadian sample of varsity athletes. Previous research shows that these symptoms can be important predictors of prolonged recovery from concussion (Broshek et al., 2015). Parti...
Article
Full-text available
Research suggests that select processing speed measures can also serve as embedded validity indicators (EVIs). The present study examined the diagnostic utility of Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Fourth Edition (WAIS-IV) subtests as EVIs in a mixed clinical sample of 205 patients medically referred for neuropsychological assessment (53.3% female,...
Conference Paper
Background: Sexually explicit and erotic material is becoming increasingly socially acceptable to access. The fact that popular television shows (such as Game of Thrones or Orange is the New Black) frequently feature nudity and explicit sexual behaviour as well as the recent popularity of the Shades of Grey book series are both excellent demonstrat...
