The TOMM is a systematic method to assist psychologists discriminate between bona fide memory impaired clients and malingerers. It is essentially an ‘easy’ test that clients believe is difficult – malingerers typically score poorly.

Clients are shown two sets of 50 pictures and then given recognition trials after each set. A retention trial may also be administered approximately 15 minutes later.

Data is reported for cognitively intact adults, those with a cognitive impairment, aphasia, traumatic brain injury and dementia. Validity data using simulators and those at risk for malingering support the usefulness of this test.

A single report is available, listing client scores and a statement as to the likelihood they falsified their responses.


  • Short administration time.
  • Excellent validity studies.
