Abstract:
An Automated Screening Kiosk (ASK), a non-invasive screening system, is used to conduct an altered Concealed Information Test (CIT), collecting measures to detect deceit. One of the many objectives of using the ASK is to determine whether response time is a viable measure for use in a CIT system. The time it takes for participants to respond to questions asked during the test could signal deception. The results from the coding of response times confirm the results from previous studies showing that guilty individuals take more time to respond when they see a threatening stimulus. More research needs to be done before we can accurately gauge the validity of using response time as a measure for detecting deception.
