The Paulhus Deception Scales (PDS) is a 40-item instrument that is able to identify individuals who distort their responses. Designed to be administered concurrently with other instruments, the PDS items are phrased in contemporary, gender-neutral language.
The PDS Quickscore Form presents the 40 item statements. Respondents are asked to rate each statement on a 5 point scale.
The Quickscore Form includes all the information required for administration, scoring and profiling results. The respondent writes on the external layers of the form, and the results then transfer through to the hidden scoring grid within. The examiner uses these internal layers to calculate the results. All QuickScore Forms include norms conversion tables (to convert the raw scores).
