Surveys focusing on the use of psychological tests in the forensic setting have confirmed the widespread use of objective tests and measures. A review of all currently available tests and measures is beyond the scope of this chapter, so it provides only a review of the most frequently used psychometric tests and personality inventories used to assess the following: DSM–IV–TR Axis I and Axis II disorders (e.g., Structured Clinical Interview for the DSM-IV-TR [SCID], Structured Interview of Reported Symptoms [SIRS], Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory [MMPI], Millon Multiaxial Clinical Inventory-III [MCMI-III], and Personality Assessment Inventory [PAI]) and frontal lobe/executive and intellectual functioning (e.g., Wisconsin Card Sort Test [WCST], Stroop Color and Word Test [Stroop], Trail Making Test [TMT], California Verbal Learning Test-II [CVLT-II], Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale–Third Edition [WAIS-III], Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale–Fourth Edition [WAIS-IV], and Wechsler Memory Scale–Fourth edition [WMS-IV]).
