LS/CMI

Overview

Overview

The Level of Service/Case Management Inventory (LS/CMI) is a fully functioning case management tool and an assessment that measures the risk and need factors of late adolescent and adult offenders. This single application provides all the essential tools needed to aid professionals in treatment planning for and management of offenders in justice, forensic, correctional, prevention, and related agencies.

Developed to reflect the increasing knowledge base on offender risk assessment since the Level of Service Inventory–Revised (LSI-R), LS/CMI has refined and combined the 54 LSI-R items into 43 items in Section 1. Ten additional comprehensive sections have been incorporated to further assist public safety professionals in their analysis of offender management.

Key Features:

  • Combines risk assessment and case management in one convenient evidence-based system
  • Provides all the essential tools needed to aid professionals in treatment planning for and management of offenders in justice, forensic, correctional, prevention, and related agencies
  • Assesses the rehabilitation needs of offenders, their risk of recidivism, and the most relevant factors related to supervision and programming requirements
  • Focuses on offender strengths and is gender-informed

Normative Data

Profile Reports summarize the results of an individual administration, providing scores for all scales.
 

Comparative Reports show progress over time, comparing up to four assessments for the same offender. They are free with the purchase of Profile Reports.
 

Case Management Reports provide an administrative summary of the criminogenic and noncriminogenic needs of the offender. They also list special responsivity considerations and include a discharge summary where applicable. This summary describes the off ender’s treatment progress status at the time of discharge, and recommendations for the future. They are free with the purchase of Profile Reports.
 

Follow-Up Reports are used to document major events for the offender such as reoffending or successful completion of treatment/supervision.

LS/CMI Offender History Form

The Offender History Form records assessment rationale and offender history information for a given LS/CMI assessment. The form is comprised of two parts: Reason for Assessment and General Criminal History and Offense Information.

LS/CMI QuikScore Form

The LS/CMI QuikScore form is professionally-completed and consists of eight sections.

LS/CMI Program Targets and Intervention Plan Form

The LS/CMI Program Targets and Intervention Plan Form assists with the documentation of targeted risk areas and the corresponding treatment/intervention.

LS/CMI Progress Record Form

The LS/CMI Progress Record Form assists in the documentation of the offender’s progress.

LS/CMI Interview Guide

The LS/CMI Interview Guide consists of questions necessary to obtain scores for the LS/CMI.

LS/CMI Case Management Protocol Form

The LS/CMI Case Management Protocol Form consists of three sections: the Case Management Plan, the Progress Record, and the Discharge Summary. The form is essential to the development of the case management.

LS/CMI ColorPlot Profile for Male Offenders Form

The LS/CMI ColorPlot Profile for Male Offenders Form is used to convert raw scores obtained from the QuikScore into T-scores.

The LS/CMI consists of 11 sections. The Level of Service Assessment (Section 1) can be used on its own with Level of Service Risk Assessment Interview Guides and QuikScore Forms. If you wish to use the full LS/CMI administration materials, include the LS/CMI Interview Guide, an Offender History Form, a QuikScore Form for recording responses, a Case Management Program, and a ColorPlot Profile Form. With the software format, all of these components are included in the program and you can instantly generate Profile Reports, Comparative Reports, and Case Management Reports.

Extensive scientific validation studies have been conducted on the LS/CMI's reliability and validity. Internal consistency as measured by Cronbach's alpha is high and has been very stable across multiple samples and populations. Research has also disclosed that the validity of the LS/CMI is strong and consistent.

The normative sample for the LS/CMI consists of 157,947 North American youth and adult offenders—60,156 American adults and youth offenders from 10 jurisdictions, and 97,791 Canadian community and institutionalized adult and youth offenders.
