This 'professional' organization, in a nutshell, admits upfront that this is an interrogation/control tool.  Not one that actually shows truth.

However, available accuracy data also suggest that between and of polygraph charts indicating deception are incorrect. Since polygraph is theoretically based on fear of being caught lying, it is necessary to attach significant consequences to deceptive charts. This puts practitioners who use PSCOT in the position of knowing that to of examinees they sanction for deception are in fact, victims of test error.

Check out the "research" on the CVSA at this site mentioned above:

There is a lot of CVSA info and anecdotal stories. If you believe it, the CVSA tests, in over 50 comparisons with the polygraph, yielded IDENTICAL results!

Reads like an infomercial. Where's Popeil?

The question list you referenced is intended for the interrogation of convicted sex offenders, not law enforcement applicants. The polygraph questions asked by the FBI (or very near equivalents) are available in DoDPI's "Law Enforcement Pre-Employment Polygraph" document, which you can download here:


The similarities between CVSA and polygraphy are indeed striking! Wink It's funny how so many polygraphers decry CVSA as junk science while failing to view their own practice with the same critical eye.

By the way, the link you provided gives a directory listing. The index page for the Central Association of Computer Voice Stress Analysts is here:
