Can I propose the Questions?
Our client support team work closley with you in the initial stage to make sure that the questions are worded so that the answer can be close ended. Questions must be specific to an incident, event or statement and cannot be about a belief or opinion. E.g a question that could be asked is Where you with [Name] on the 23rd September?. This would be a suitable question. However, If you want to ask when you were speaking to [Name] were you thinking about having a relationship with [Name]. We cannot measure thoughts or beliefs.

Does it cost more if I have more questions?
Every test is set out to achieve an objective, whether it be to verify the truth, disprove an allegation or find out the truth amonst lies and issues of trust. A standard specific issue test normally approximately 2 hours and there would be 1,2 or 3 specific issue questions that could be asked. The examinee is asked around 15 questions during the 2 hour period and those questions are neccessary as the examiner uses them to profile and test the examinee on how they respond to multiple and varied questions. In the majority of cases we find that 3 close ended questions are sufficient to resolve issues. If you do require more then we could discuss and would have to create a separate test case.
How do you measure accuracy?
High accuracy is achieved through four main factors, the enviroment in which we set the test is devised to be void of distrubance or distraction, the examinee is instructed to follow a strict code of conduct, the equipment is regularly calibrated and updated and the examiner is constantly updated with the latest and most optimal techniques in lie detection which have been devised by the world leading bodies such as The American Polygraph Association and the British Board of Polygraph Examiners.
