It should also be Translating Psychological Theory into Interview Tactics 19 noted that specific questions about the evidence serve the purpose of systematically exhausting alternative explanations that a guilty suspect may have for the existence of the evidence (Granhag and Vrij, 2010).

The deceptive context for the guilty is also different from the traditional situation. At a portal, the target person may not, as yet, have committed a malicious act. , he/she has malintent). The person may or may not have false credentials, but if he/she intends to commit transgressions in the future, that is the central nature of the deception and the focus of credibility assessment. To date, little research has addressed credibility assessment in the deceptive context presented by portals. It is simply not clear whether research done in a criminal/­investigative context will generalize to the portal situation.

STRATEGIC USE OF EVIDENCE assists in standardizing interview procedures and increases internal validity, it limits the generalizability of the results. Additional research using nonresearcher interviewers will be necessary in order to test if the effectiveness of the SUE approach is impacted when the interviewers are not researchers. The single study that used police recruits as interviewers produced some of the largest effect sizes in the literature, so it may be possible that the laboratory studies in which researchers have conducted scripted interviews have, in fact, underestimated the effectiveness of SUE tactics in eliciting statement– evidence inconsistencies.
