This chapter reports the results from a nationwide survey of experienced CST examiners regarding their practices, preferences for instruments, and use of collateral data. These examiners also provided estimates of different types of invalid responding (feigned cognitive impairment, amnesia, psychopathology, ignorance of court system, physical infirmity, poor effort) seen in CST defendants. Desirable attributes of CST instruments were assessed, as was the standing of major instruments on each of these attributes. Moderators such as ABPP status, inpatient or outpatient setting, and defense versus prosecution orientation were assessed for their effects on other variables such as instrument choice, use of tests or collateral sources, and estimated rates of invalid responding.
