Polygraph

EyeDetect isn’t a polygraph, so does it fall under The Employee Polygraph Protection Act of 1988? Can any U.S. employer use it on employees?

Although the EPPA law specifically mentions polygraph, the law has been applied in practice more broadly to the use of any lie detection solution. At the heart of the law is the concept of protecting a person’s right to privacy in employment. Thus, any lie detector would be prohibited. However, lie detection solutions can be

What are the advantages of EyeDetect vs. polygraph for screening job applicants?

2019-06-28T14:54:25-06:00

The absence of probable-lie comparison questions in an EyeDetect test eliminates concerns about any overlap that might occur between “relevant” and “comparison” questions (see “How is the polygraph typically used? What is the average accuracy for those uses?” above). The reactions to two sets of “relevant” questions are compared and each relevant issue serves as

Is it possible to beat an EyeDetect exam, the same way some claim they can beat a polygraph test?

When a deceptive person is devising a story to tell a lie, there’s an increase in cognitive load, or brain activity. If someone has the capacity to create a story without increasing how the brain reacts to this process, then that person will appear less deceptive. The pupils react involuntarily to an increase in cognitive

Can EyeDetect and polygraph be combined to test individuals?

2019-06-28T14:52:25-06:00

If EyeDetect and polygraph are used together, the probability of a false negative error is greatly diminished. Note: False negative means a deceptive person is categorized as truthful. EyeDetect primarily measures cognitive processes and the polygraph primarily measures emotional responses. As such, the two tests would be relatively independent and would provide complementary information about

How is the polygraph typically used? What is the average accuracy for those uses?

2019-06-28T14:51:31-06:00

The polygraph exam typically has two main uses: for incident-specific questioning, like the police use in investigations; and for screenings, such as the ones employed by government agencies. 1) In criminal investigations in the U.S., the polygraph is used to determine if statements by suspects concerning a specific crime are truthful or deceptive. The polygraph

Was EyeDetect designed to replace the polygraph?

2019-06-28T14:51:09-06:00

EyeDetect can be used to replace in some circumstances and/or can complement the polygraph. In reality, EyeDetect is the perfect add-on service for a polygraph company. Studies show that the polygraph can be very accurate for event-specific questioning (a specific line of questioning). However, studies also show that EyeDetect has shown a superior level of

What are the differences between EyeDetect and the polygraph?

2019-06-28T14:53:15-06:00

Polygraph machines sense changes in glucocorticoid (hormone) levels, which initiate chemical reactions such as changes in respiration, heart rate and skin conductance (a moisture buildup under skin). Thus, a polygraph measures physiological changes when under the stress of questioning. That questioning is intended to determine whether a person is lying or being truthful. EyeDetect measures
