The LAQ has been revised. The LAQ-2 is shorter and uses a True-False format. Changes made to the LAQ were based on three independent studies that demonstrated the effectiveness of the LAQ in classifying individuals who feign pain complaints. The results of these investigations support the utility of the LAQ for reaching conclusions about the presence of malingering.
The classification accuracy of the LAQ for determining pain-related malingering is examined in a paper recently published in the journal Behavioral Sciences and the Law.
