There are an increasing number of tests available for detecting malingering. However, these tests have not been validated for using in Spanish speakers. The purpose of this study is to explore the value of three specific malingering tests in the Spanish population. This study used a known-groups design, together with a group of analog students. The results show that both the Victoria Symptom Validity Test and the b Test can be used to detect malingering in Spanish population. However, some restrictions must be applied when the Rey 15-Item Test is administered and interpreted.
