Item-level faking detection

Scholars have argued that faking happens on the item-level (KKuncel & Tellegen, 2001) and has complex patterns (e.g., non-linearity; Kuncel & Borneman, 2007).

In this project, we put this argument directly to test. Specifically, my collaborator Bo Zhang and I trained some supervised learning models to prediction whether an respondent was faking or not based on item-level personality measurement data. Initial results showed support to Kuncel and his colleagues.
