Abstract : To evaluate if event-related relevant questions could serve as control questions to discriminate between programmed guilty persons (PGP) and programmed innocent persons (PIP), rank order scoring was applied to the test results of forty individuals evenly and randomly assigned to innocent and guilty groups. The results showed that event-related relevant questions can be used as controls and will discriminate PGP from PIP. (AN)
