Correction of mistake in the original version of this paper, “Further Validation of the Test of Memory Malingering (TOMM) Trial 1 Performance Validity Index: Examination of False Positives and Convergent Validity”, the sentence “As indicated in Table 7, TOMM T1 ≤ 40 exhibited sensitivity of .86 and specificity of .85, though TOMM T1 ≤ 43 exhibited the best combination of sensitivity (.81) and specificity (.91) in our sample.” in the Results section should read “As indicated in Table 7, TOMM T1 ≤ 40 exhibited sensitivity of .85 and specificity of .86, though TOMM T1 ≤ 36 exhibited the best combination of sensitivity (.79) and specificity (.90) in our sample.”.

Note: TOMM T1 = Test of Memory Malingering Trial 1. Criterion group used ≥2 criterion PVT failures as indicating noncredible, and ≤ 1 criterion PVT failures indicating valid. Bold denotes the score with the optimal sensitivity and specificity values

In the Discussion section, the sentence “Based on standards in neuropsychology performance validity testing suggesting that sensitivity ≥.40 and specificity ≥.90 represent adequate classification accuracy (Boone, 2012), ROC curve analyses suggested TOMM T1 ≤42 had the best combination of sensitivity (.81) and specificity (.91) in our sample, while TOMM T1 ≤40 exhibited sensitivity of .86 and specificity of .85.” should read “Based on standards in neuropsychology performance validity testing suggesting that sensitivity ≥.40 and specificity ≥.90 represent adequate classification accuracy (Boone, 2012), ROC curve analyses suggested TOMM T1 ≤36 had the best combination of sensitivity (.79) and specificity (.90) in our sample, while TOMM T1 ≤40 exhibited sensitivity of .85 and specificity of .86”.

The corrected Table 7 is given below.
