University of Minnesota Press Test Division
2014-2015 Request for Proposal (U of M Fiscal Year 15)

The Press invites proposals from non-student investigators for research and development on the MMPI-2-RF, the MMPI-2, and the MMPI-A. Only one proposal per investigator will be considered, unless the Press has expressly invited specific proposals for product development. 


Priority will be given to studies that:

- address test use with active-duty and veteran military personnel
- predict outcomes in employment screening
- assess risk assessment in forensic settings 
- assess invalid responding in forensic settings
- predict treatment process or outcome of psychological, psychiatric, or medical treatments
- assess variables relating to eating disorders
- assess callousness
- inform integration of clinical inferences from multiple MMPI-2-RF scales (e.g., using H-O and RC scales together, RC and SP scales together, RCd and RC# scales together

 These have been identified as research priorities. However, we do not wish to discourage the submission of proposals in other areas that investigators have an interest in exploring.



 The Press invites proposals for:
- exploration of item-level and scale-level improvements of the MMPI-2-RF
- enhancements of and revision to the MMPI-2-RF Scoring and Interpretive Reports. Although not limited to specific parts of the reports, we ask that proposals address the comparison group and annotation features of the reports
- development of MMPI-2-RF interpretive reports for medical settings, including, but not limited to, screening for bariatric and spinal surgery. 

Submission Process:
Requests should be submitted on the attached forms: 

  • Request for Research Funding    Word | PDF 
  • Request for Product Development Funding    Word | PDF 

In completing the forms, please provide thorough and detailed responses. Requests will be formally reviewed by the Test Division’s Advisory Board as to the quality of the proposal and the importance of the proposed research/development. The advisors will be asked to comment on the strengths and/or weaknesses of new proposals and on the progress reported on requests for renewal funding of previously supported research. 

Please submit requests using the above downloadable forms, to Tami Brown, Test Division Contracts/Permissions Coordinator, at by Wednesday April 30, 2014.
